What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary) provides a convenient way to gather and quickly browse information from a variety of sources, including press releases, product updates, or changes to a web site. Small amounts of content, called "feeds", are automatically sent to an RSS reader. Feeds are generally a headline, summary, or preview of the complete content. Through the RSS reader, feeds from various sources can be scanned with the ability to access the complete content relating to any interesting feeds.
How do I subscribe to RSS Feeds?
To "subscribe" to an RSS feed, you'll need to install an RSS reader. Once you've subscribed, the RSS reader periodically checks the feed to see if any new content has been posted. The reader then retrieves any new news added to the feed.
|Adding news feeds to your RSS Reader:|
|1. Click on the RSS feed that interests to you|
|2. When a new window opens, copy the URL from the address bar of your browser|
|3. Paste the URL into your RSS reader|
How do I get an RSS Reader?
There are many different RSS reader available. Some web browsers have RSS readers built in. There are also online aggregators, websites such as My Yahoo, iGoogle or Bloglines that allow you to customize them by adding RSS feeds. Once you have installed your RSS reader, please refer to your reader's instructions to configure your settings.
