What is an RSS feed and how do I use it?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's one of the nuts-and-bolts systems that help computers talk to each other.
Instead of visiting one site after another, an RSS feed in a reader (like Outlook) will deliver the latest updates to you. It's like a newspaper sending the articles to you instead of you picking up the newspaper.
Since an RSS feed is just a computer file, you can do cool things like searches, filter and display the information in different ways.
On the Newspaper page, there are two RSS feeds
And here's the RSS feed for Al Jazeera English
If you click on that link in Internet Explorer you'll get a screen like you see below
If you click on the star, 'Subscribe to This Feed' link, you'll get a bookmark that updates automatically
If you would like a little more control, Outlook has an RSS folder as well
The little orange icon is the universal sign for an RSS feed, so you'll start spotting them everywhere now!
