What is a news feed?

News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines in one place, as soon as it's published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.  News feeds, also known as RSS ('Really Simple Syndication') feeds, are just web pages designed to be read by computers rather than people.  The presence of a news feed on a web page is usually indicated by the square orange icon.  

Rowing news published on this website is available as an RSS News Feed.

How do I read a news feed?

You can read a news feed using a browser, a web-based news reader, a smartphone app or a desktop email program.

Most modern browsers, including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Chrome automatically check for feeds when you visit a website, and display the orange RSS icon when they find one. Many of them allow you to add RSS feeds as a browser favourite or bookmark folder, automatically updating them with the latest content.

Web-based news readers, such as Google Reader, check feeds and displays any new articles that have been added. They let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, making this option useful if you want to access the feeds from multiple computers or devices.

Desktop email programs such as Outlook for Microsoft Windows or Mail for Mac OS X allow news stories from RSS feeds to appear alongside your email.
