What are RSS feeds?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds provides a convenient way to gather and quickly browse information from a variety of sources. This can include press releases, the latest jobs, or council decisions.
Small amounts of content, called 'feeds', are automatically sent to an RSS reader. Feeds are generally a headline, summary, or preview of the complete content. Through the RSS reader, feeds from various sources can be scanned with the ability to access the complete content.

Why we use RSS feeds
RSS allows you to stay informed by retrieving the latest content from websites you are interested in, saving you time as you will not need to visit each site individually for updates.

How can I access RSS feeds?
RSS content can be read using software called an ‘RSS reader’, ‘feed reader’ or an ‘aggregator’. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process.
You can download a free feed reader from the internet.
Modern web browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, automatically check for feeds for you when you visit a website, and display an icon when they find one. This can make subscribing to feeds much easier. For more details on these, please check their websites.
