Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. What is an RSS feed?
RSS or "Really Simple Syndication" feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines and information in one place, as soon as it is published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.
2. How do I read the information on RSS feeds?
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 Hotmail.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive. Simply copy the link address of the feed you want to subscribe to (see above) and paste it in your news reader!
3. Can I read RSS feeds on my mobile phone or PDA?
Yes, of course! All you need is a news reader installed on your device.
