Frequently Asked Questions
What are Newsfeeds? A newsfeed is a feed of
headlines from a Web site that you can subscribe to for free and
display in a newsreader. When news updates, your reader notifies
you. Many Web sites offer headlines in this format.
Why Should I Use a Newsfeed Reader? Using a
newsfeed reader allows you to view headlines from many blogs or news
sources in one place. Readers also alert you when new articles on
the topics you're interested in are published so you don't have to
keep checking your favorite Web sites. Some readers also feature
scrolling tickers or integrate into e-mail and Web browsers. When
you are alerted of the new article, you can click on a link that
will take you directly to the article.
Why Does it Say RSS on the Icon? RSS stands
for "Really Simple Syndication." Recently, other icons have been
designed that work for individual newsreaders. For instance, you may
see an "Add to My Yahoo!" or a "Sub Bloglines" icon on a Web page in
addition to an "RSS" icon. If you have one of those newsreaders, by
clicking on the link, the feed is added to your reader.
