Web feeds (also known as RSS, or Atom feeds) allow you to keep track of the latest offerings from your favorite websites without having to check each site manually, or clutter up your inbox with update emails.
To read the feeds, you have several options available. The most common way is to use a tool called a “news aggregator” or “feed reader”. There are a great number of news aggregators available; some are stand-alone applications, while others may be built into your web browser. Try running a search for “feed readers” or “feed aggregator” on your preferred search engine to find the one that suits you.
In order to be able to receive RSS newsfeeds you need to either download a news aggregator tool to your computer, download an Outlook plugin or sign up for an online site such as www.bloglines.com
- In order to download a news aggregator, you can go to http://blogspace.com/rss/readers and select one based on what operating platform you are using.
- If you prefer to install the Outlook plug-in and receive your news directly to your Outlook, you can go to http://www.newsgator.com/ngs/default.aspx and download it from there.
- If you do however prefer to access your newsfeed via an online service
and without downloading any software or plug-ins, you can sign up to an
online site like www.bloglines.com. or www.googlereader.com
