What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is way you can keep up-to-date with the latest headlines, stories and information from your favourite sites very easily. Instead of having to go to each site to check for updates, RSS allows you to keep tabs on them from one central place – this can be either your internet browser like Firefox, Flock or Safari, or a special newsreader you can install on your computer.

Whichever one you prefer to use, every so often it will check the web feeds of websites you subscribe to and let you know if there’s been any updates since it last checked. You’ll be able to see at a glance what’s new and you won’t lose touch with websites you visit less frequently.

How do I get a newsreader?

Very easily, and there are many different versions available. Many of the big online companies have their own reader service, including Google and Yahoo! If you already have any account with them, then you’ll be able to use their reader; if not, then it’s very easy to sign up.

Some readers, such as Feedreader, are applications that you download to your computer, but many are web-based so you can access them on anywhere – these include Bloglines and Netvibes.

A complete list would be far to big to post here, but here is a list of some of the most popular readers. Find one you like the look of, create an account and away you go.

So how do I get Greenpeace headlines delivered to my reader?

Look at the list of available feeds at the top of this page and decide which feed you would like to receive. Hover your cursor over the relevant link, right click and select ‘Copy link location’ or ‘Copy shortcut’. Then go to your newsreader or browser, create a new subscription and paste in the link. Each reader is different so, if you can’t quite figure out how to add your first subscription, check your application’s help section.

What else can I subscribe to?

Many of the other websites we use also have RSS feeds. Subscribe to these and you’ll be alerted whenever we post new material. These include:

 Flickr – photos from our actions and events

 YouTube – videos and animations

 Twitter – short updates which can be sent to your mobile phone
