About news feeds

What are news feeds?

News feeds let you know when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines in one place, as soon as they're published, without having to visit the website in question. News feeds are sometimes referred to as 'RSS' or 'Atom', depending on the format they have been published in.

How do I use news feeds?

If you’re unfamiliar with news feeds, they are easy to use. Most web browsers are now able to pick them up automatically.

Alternatively you can use a tool such as Google Reader.

More about news feeds and readers on the BBC website.
