Keeping up with the latest news takes time and effort and if the person has the right tools and spend some time setting them up, they can get constant news updates even in a country like Nigeria. The truth is that the means through which people get news has changed over the last couple of years and these days all it takes are a couple of clicks to create a tailor-made list of headlines on the topics that the reader has an interest in such as major news on political happenings in Nigeria. An important fact to state is that this does not mean that the person should ignore the rest of the news, but it allows the person to segregate the reading of news outside of their core focus when they browse and read at their leisure.
One of the best mediums to get news updates is through RSS Feed readers which are quick, convenient and easily customizable. RSS feed readers are online services that have a web account and an application that enables the user to subscribe to specific URLs thus they will get notified when the URLs are updated. Getting an RSS feed involves first creating an account then adding feeds that one wants to follow to the account thus anytime they log in they will see a dashboard with a list of stories from the feeds that the person has subscribed to. Many of the feeds look like similar to an email box but the headline that has the subject line that is different and when the person clicks open they get the full story or a paragraph and a link to the whole article.
Most media outlets have RSS feeds in all the major news sections, and all one has to if they want to follow news the whole day is leave the RSS feed reader account open in one tab and check it periodically for updates like the way one would check the email.

The other alternative is to use social media pages to follow news updates from news outlets, experts in various fields and journalists that the person wants to follow or they could get the same information by creating a list on the social media platform and leave the followers as they are. It is worth highlighting that the list is a set of social media accounts that the reader or another user cultivates and saves but they do not have to follow anyone on the list or get updates from it. The list has a feature that can make it private thus if the user does not want anyone to be aware that they avidly check the updates from the top social media accounts by keeping it locked.5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Sources
