About RSS Feeds
It is now possible to receive news and information directly from many websites, without the need to visit the website - saving you time and effort. If a website shows the RSS symbol, you can subscribe to regular updates when content on parts of the website changes, without needing to check the website yourself. The updates are delivered to your mail program (E.g., Outlook 2007 has a Feeds folder), internet browser, or to an Aggregator (see below). Feeds will generally provide summarised information, with links back to the originating website, in case you want additional information.
It is possible to keep in touch with multiple websites at once by setting up a news aggregator website, a single page where all your news feeds are visible. There are lots of free aggregators around (as a clue, search Wikipedia for ‘Aggregator’ for background and examples), and they are usually very easy to set up. You can customise them with tools (also called widgets) like calendars, stock prices, weather forecasts, etc as well as RSS feeds from lots of different sites. Many people use these as their homepage, thereby quickly being able to review anything new from sites they are interested in.
