What are News Feeds?
News feeds allow you to see when websites that you subscribe to have added new content. You can get the latest content added to our website in one place, as soon as its published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from. Feeds are also known as RSS, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
How to start using feeds?
In general, the first thing you need is a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based service like Gmail or Hotmail.
Below are some examples,
- Windows FeedReader, Newz Crawler, FeedDemon, Awasu
- Mac OS X Newsfire, NetNewsWire
- Web Google, Bloglines, FeedZilla, NewsGator, My Yahoo!
- Browser Mozilla Firefox

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive, look for the orange RSS button next to or below the content on our website. If you click on the RSS button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon in the browser's address bar when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
