New Iteration of the Feedly Onboarding Process

As part of 2.x.158, we are pushing out a new iteration of the onboard/welcome process. Here is what it looks like:

New Feedly Onboarding Process (Iteration 9)

This iteration includes two major innovation: Twitter import and a new Most Popular Page.

Most Popular Page

The goal of the most popular page is to give users who do not have a Google Account or are not logged in a preview of the feedly experience based on the best content from some of the best sources integrated in the feedly system. This way users can get a taste of feedly without having to perform any configuration. If they like the experience, they can login/create a google account, import their favorite sources and transform the default experience into something personalized.

Import Twitter

Configuring feedly with a personalized list of sources is hard. We are have tried to automate this process as much as possible, allowing users to import their OPML from Google Reader, Netvibes, Bloglines or Firefox Places. Today we go one step further and allow users to personalize their feedly by importing a set of feeds based on their tweets. Here is how it works. If you select the Import Twitter option, feedly will connect to twitter, look at your last 200 tweets, find the ones which include links, analyse each link and see if there is an associated source/feed for that link and create a bundle of 15-25 feeds based on that information. The goal is to create a default feedly experience which is personal and you can further customize over time by removing the sources which you do not like and adding more sources and categories.
