What Is an RSS Feed?
RSS feeds are a method for having content from the web automatically delivered to you in a simple format, such as on a personalized website. There are a few different definitions of the acronym RSS, the most common being �Really Simple Syndication.� By subscribing to various feeds, you create your own self-updating collection of information. Instead of having to visit multiple websites, you can have all your favorite content available in one place to review at your leisure.
How to Subscribe
To subscribe to RSS feeds, the first thing you need to do is set up an account with an RSS �reader� or �aggregator,� which will collect the content for you. Some readers are web-based, while others must be downloaded to your computer. For a list of popular RSS readers, go to http://blogspace.com/rss/readers.
Once you�ve selected a reader, you are ready to subscribe to RSS feeds. The reader will ask for the URL of the feed to which you would like to subscribe. Below are the feeds available for JASN. Click the link for the feed you would like to add. This will bring you to a webpage filled with the necessary computer coding. All you need to do is copy the URL from your web browser�s navigation bar. This is the URL to paste into the RSS reader that will enable it to find new content as it becomes available. You are not limited to choosing only one of the feeds below � you can subscribe to all of them if you wish!
