You may recognize the universal feed icon or these “chicklets” from your favorite Web sites, blogs and podcasts. These icons represent content in any format – text, audio or video – to which you can subscribe and read/watch/listen using a feed reader.
Why is This a Good Thing?
Technology evolution in online publishing has made it really easy to not only publish regular updates to web-based content, but also keep track of a large number of your favorite Web sites or blogs, without having to remember to check each site manually or clutter your email Inbox. You can now streamline your online experience by subscribing to specific content feeds and aggregating this information in one place to be read when you are ready. Subscribing to feeds makes it possible to review a large amount of online content in a very short time.
How do I read feeds?
If you want to browse and subscribe to feeds, you have many choices. Today, there are more than 2,000 different feed reading applications, also known as “news aggregators” (for text, mostly) or “podcatchers” (for podcasts). There are even readers that work exclusively on mobile devices.
A typical interface for a feed reader will display your feeds and the number of new (unread) entries within each of those feeds. You can also organize your feeds into categories and even clip and save your favorite entries (with certain applications).
If you prefer, you can use an online, web-based service to track and manage feeds. Online services give you the advantage of being able to access your feed updates anywhere you can find a web browser. Also, upgrades and new features are added automatically.
This is how a typical online feed reader looks like:
On the left you have the list of sites from which you get the latest news; on the right you can read the actual content of the site which you select from the left column. Easy, isn’t it?
You can also use your browser to collect the feeds: all modern browsers support feed reading. All you need to do is to click on the feed icon that appears in the address bar of the browser when you visit a site, and allow the browser to add the site’s feed to the list. Each time there is new content published, you will know it before visiting the site.
