How to use RSS Feeds?
What are RSS Feeds?
An RSS feed is a file format that allows you to quickly access updated content from our website, at your convenience. It is often depicted by an orange logo with the three curved bars.
An "RSS aggregator," commonly called a reader, allows you to view «Newspaper name» headlines. How does this work? Each page has a feed assigned to it. You choose to subscribe to specific pages of interest (News, Sports, Entertainment, Life, Photos, etc.) by clicking on the RSS logo and feeding the URL into your reader. Once subscribed to the page, you view only the headlines. A script runs every few minutes, updating the feed with new posts. When you click on a headline you´re directed to the full article.
Reading your news in this fashion has become recognized as a very helpful way of saving time and organizing your interests! As a result, the RSS feature is now entertained by almost every news site/blog on the Web.
