What are news feeds?
News feeds allow you to see when websites have been updated and added new content. You can get the latest update, as soon as it is published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from. Feeds are also known as RSS. There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for "Really Simple Syndication". In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.
How do I start using feeds?
In general, the first thing you need is something called 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 must be downloaded and set up on your PC.
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 Hotmail.
Modern web browsers, such as Firefox, Internet Explorer 7, Google Chrome, have RSS capability already built in.
Personalised web start pages, like Pageflakes, NetVibes, iGoogle, My Yahoo! And Microsoft Live, allow you to set up a number of different RSS feeds on a single page.
If you don’t have a suitable web browser, there is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.
Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer.
