What are RSS feeds?

What are RSS feeds?

RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication'. Instead of having to visit all of your favourite sites and blogs, you can use RSS to receive updates of these sites automatically.

To use feeds you will need to set up a feed reader. Some of the popular ones are:

Netvibes

Google reader

Setting up an RSS feed

Once you have installed your feed reader, find the feed you are interested in subscribing to (look for the orange RSS feed button on the site) 

Read the instructions given by your Feed Reader on how to subscribe to the feed.

You can then simply check your feeds regularly to see what new content has been published.
