Where to start?

Choosing the right resources can help overwhelming. Before you dive in our TOP picks, listen to the words of wisdom by Matas Kibildis, Head of SEO and Growth Marketing at Oxylabs.

“One of the most important things for me is to set an objective about what kind of information is interesting and the most relevant for you. However, don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to read everything as soon as possible. Make a game plan: use apps like Feedly to aggregate your sources into one place and schedule a specific time of the day for reading them. Prioritize and filter these sources and be selective about the number of sources to ensure quality over quantity.”

  1. Cross-reference information. Look for the same news on multiple reputable platforms. If the story is only reported by one source, its credibility might be questionable.

  2. Understand the bias of every source. Knowing what it is can help you understand the perspective they might be coming from.

  3. Check the date and context. Sometimes, old news stories are shared as if they’re current.

  4. Quality over sensationalism. Prefer news sources that focus on quality reporting over sensational or provocative content.

  5. Peer reviews and endorsements. In professional and academic circles, peer-reviewed articles and studies are more reliable. Also, endorsements by known experts can add to the credibility.

  6. Look for evidence. Reliable news often includes verifiable evidence, not just claims. Check if the article links to reports, studies, or data.

We’ll be the first ones to confirm that with the fast pace of technology updates, staying ahead of the game is key. Start by diving deeper into the resources mentioned above and equip yourself with the knowledge that will help you stay informed and relevant. 🚀
