How effective is News Diet?

On an average a user reads about three to ten articles per day which amounts to 15 to 50 minutes per day. For a month it’s about 450–1500 minutes.

There is a saying “What is important is seldom urgent, and what is urgent is seldom important.” by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Social Media and News Applications focus only on the recent articles and not on historic ones. This makes the user spent time on quadrant 1, quadrant 3 and quadrant 4 and not on quadrant 2. But according to time management principles focusing on quadrant 2 is important and less emphasized by many.

By using the reader can consider picking about 20 to 50 popular articles per month. This takes around 100–250 minutes per month. With this lesser time spent, most of the important articles have been covered. It takes about 4.5 to 6 times lesser time to read just the popular articles.
