Feedly is an RSS reader. This is a program where you enter the RSS feeds of the informational websites you want to keep up with and it pulls in the latest items and presents them to you in a format like a personalized newspaper front page. Google really popularized these a few years back with their Google Reader. Lots of people loved it, but then Google pulled the plug in 2013 to everyone's surprise.
Feedly can also be used to post to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. The paid versions can also send items to ifttt or zapier. Paid? I hear you ask. Yes. The Pro version is $5.41 per month, the Team version is $18.08. The Team version integrates with Slack and allows digging deeper into Google News.
All in all, it's a pretty slick piece of software and worthy successor to the late Google Reader.
