RSS Really Simple Syndication News Feeds and Feed Readers

January 5th 2006

RSS Really Simple Syndication News Feeds and Feed Readers

The Sage RSS Feed Reader

The Internet has become the most amazing tool for disseminating information and research.  It is used in hospital emergency rooms in an effort to diagnose disease.  It is used by companies to communicate and improve efficiency.  So what is the next big thing?

The next big thing will likely be Really Simple Syndication (RSS).  This will end up taking the place of newsletters because of its effectiveness.  There will be no need to give away your email address and risk unneeded spam.  You can narrow your interests and subscribe to specific information that interests you.

So how does it work and why would you want it?  The first thing you will need is a news-feed reader.  There are many vendors and technologies available.  The Opera browser has a built in news feed reader.  When you land on a XML page, Opera will ask if you want to add the feed.   

 

I have been using Firefox and just found a great Feed Reader called Sage.  It was incredibly simple to install from the sage website.  It stations itself as a sidebar on the Firefox browser and when you click the news feed you want to look at it updates the feed and posts it in the main window in a readable fashion.  It is very slick.

There are feed readers for other browsers and email programs.  Personally, I like the feed reader installed in my browser.  The best thing about the feed readers is that they are free.  Donít you dare pay for a reader.

Letís say you have a specific interest like heart disease, sports, automobiles or whatever.  The best way to keep up with the news is sign up for a news feed.  This can be done at all the major news sites including Forbes, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), The New York Times, etc.  You can also sign up for specific feeds from Google News that would encompass all the major news outlets. 

 

Best Syndication also offers RSS feeds for our content.  The feeds have been broken down into specific categories.  You can sign up for our all inclusive news feed or just our health news.  If you want a more specific news subject like cancer or genetics we have these segregated as well.  Here is a list of our feeds.

You can drag the little orange icon into your feed reader or actually click on the icon to visit the feed.  This will prompt you to add our news feed.  It is as simple as that, assuming you have a news feed reader installed. 

These RSS readers will likely take the place of corporate internal mailing lists. One of our contributors recently wrote an article concerning this subject. 

 

So if you have a narrow or broad subject which interests you all you need to do is download a news feed reader and search for RSS sites that will keep you informed on the latest developments.  Remember, both the feed readers and feeds should always free Ė donít sign up unless it is.
