What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a technology that allows you to receive updated news from preferred websites, which are sent directly to the user’s news reader. This includes the headlines, summaries and links to the full article on the website.
What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way to be notified about updated content on a website. Instead of having to visit a particular website, RSS will automatically send a notification when the subscribed section has been updated.
How can I sign up to RSS feeds?
To subscribe to an RSS feed, select the location of the website of interest and click the small orange RSS feed button (these buttons usually only exist on the Events, Press Releases, Blogs, and Presentation pages) to subscribe to the RSS feed. Next, simply follow the instructions for the particular RSS reader being used.
Some browsers, such as Firefox, have built-in RSS feed readers. Others, like Chrome, require a plugin. These can be downloaded from the browser support website. There are also web-based RSS feed readers which can be found through an internet search for “RSS feed readers”.
