Don't Fear the Feed

As technology grows and expands, so does the collective vocabulary of the world. It can be difficult to keep up with changes and technology can become overwhelming if the correct tools are not utilized. "RSS Feeds" and Readers are tools that can make following blogs simpler.

The Durham News Service encourages fans to subscribe to the feeds for each section of information in order to stay up-to-date on all the happenings in Durham. Each section of information features a button on the right hand side which says, “Get RSS Feed.” By clicking this button fans can download the feed to the platform of their choice by following the given instructions.

What does “getting the RSS Feed” mean? Feeds simply allow websites to distribute their content to subscribers who are interested in regular information updates. Likewise, RSS Readers are aggregators that pull Atom and RSS Feeds from selected sources to one place for ease and organization.
