Step 3: Go to Glasp Home Page

Once you’ve installed your Glasp extension, go to its home page. Here, you will see the sidebar opened where you can test highlighting words or sentences.

Also, you are free to choose your favorite topics. Choosing your topics could be a leap step as this will help you identify the articles in line with your interests.

Step 4: Highlight Articles

Start to discover, and read a wide range of articles depending on your interests.

While on the top left corner, you can also see the “Explore” tab where you can discover various types of articles from different authors. Additionally, you can even see the top highlights, comments, and notes from other users of Glasp.

Although, your range of articles is not limited to just Glasp. You are allowed to explore different articles from other sites as long as you’re going to highlight them with Glasp.

Through the articles, begin your search with what tweaks your interest and just simply start highlighting, type your tags, and learn!

Step 5: Add Tags

As you’re reading and highlighting articles, this is where the fun gets! Do not forget to put a tag on your highlighted pages because this is what will make your Atomic Interest Graph expand.

For instance, on your highlighted page you may input the term “Self-improvement” under “Tag” if it is related to the article you’ve read.

With that, you can add more tags up to your liking and depending on the topics of the articles you will read in the future.

Step 6: Expand the Atomic Interest Graph

Through the topics or tags you will be inputting; your Atomic Interest Graph will also show how your interests interrelate with each other.

The more tags you enter, the more your Atomic Interest Graph will grow. Hence, the more frequently you use similar tags, the more your Atomic Interest Graph will display a connection with your interests.
