Get Your Friends Into RSS With Inoreader’s New Invite Feature

Have you ever tried to convince somebody to start using an RSS reader, only to hear back from them something like “I don’t know where to start” or “Can you help me find some good sites to follow?”. Even we, as the developers of Inoreader, struggle with that sometimes.

That’s why we developed this new feature. You can now invite your friends and help them start right away by sharing your best collection of feeds. When they sign up, they will be presented with a choice to immediately subscribe to the feeds you selected for them. They will even be organized into folders, just like your feeds.

To begin, open the Profile menu and select Invite friends:

Then enter the email address of your friend. Don’t worry, they can choose to sign up with a different email, and the invitation will still work. It’s also possible to invite multiple people by separating their emails with a comma. You can optionally (though we highly suggest you do) select some of your feeds to help them get started and then hit Send.

Your friend will receive an email with a link. When they click it, they will only need to sign up and voila! They will start with a new Inoreader account, automatically subscribed to your selection of feeds, so they won’t have to scramble to find them on their own. We hope this new feature will help you get more of your friends into RSS with minimal effort.
