A RSS feed helps you keep up to date with information from websites without you having to visit them. Updates to your favourite websites are 'fed' to you through a feed reader.
RSS feeds consist of titles and short summaries of the full content on the website, so you can quickly assess whether or not to visit the website to view the full content.
To set up your feed consider the following:
- To use feeds you will need to set up a feed reader. For a list of suitable readers, search "RSS feed reader" in the search engine of your choice.
- Once you have installed your feed reader, find the RSS 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.
- Once you have subscribed to an RSS feed, simply check your feed reader regularly to see what new content has been published.
