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 news reader. 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 news readers. For instance, you may see an "Add to My Yahoo!" icon on a Web page in addition to an "RSS" icon. If you have one of those news readers, by clicking on the link, the feed is added to your reader.
