What are News Feeds?

News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest new stories as soon as they are published, without having to visit the website again. Feeds are also known as RSS, which are in essence 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 are downloadable applications.

Subscribing to our latest news stories via RSS is simple:


Simply right click on the RSS feed of your choice below and select 'copy shortcut'. You will need to paste this shortcut into your RSS reader in order to subscribe to the service.
