Hide details for What are RSS feeds?What are RSS feeds?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds allow you to subscribe to the new and frequently updated content of a website. Instead of having to continuously visit a website to check for new content, it is sent to you via a feed reader. When there is new content on the UNOG website, such as press releases, upcoming meetings, new permanent representatives, it appears in your reader alongside any other feeds from other websites you have subscribed to.

An RSS news feed consists of a list of items, each of which contains a headline, description, and a link to web resources. Instead of having to browse through an entire website to learn about its new content, this new content is transmitted automatically to your RSS Reader (or “news aggregator”) through an RSS Feed.

A feed reader (RSS Reader or “Aggregator”) is your virtual notepad where the content from your RSS subscriptions is organized. New or updated content of your favourite websites is automatically received for you.

RSS Aggregators can come in the form of a Web-based application or desktop software. Web-based RSS readers let you catch up with your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer (in the same way that you can either download your e-mail, or keep it on a web-based service).

Here are few popular choices of RSS readers:
Several browsers, such as Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer (from version 7.0), Opera (from version 7.5), or Safari (from version 2) can also read RSS feeds.
Email software such as Mozila Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook (from version 7.0) and the operating system Microsoft Vista, also manage RSS feeds.

The benefits and reasons for using RSS are the following:
  • It allows you to easily stay informed by receiving summaries of the latest content from the websites you are subscribed to
  • It saves time (no need to visit each website individually)
  • It ensures your privacy (spam-proof, no visit, you do not need to provide your email address, no newsletter subscription)
  • It saves bandwidth, since a feed contains only links, headlines or brief synopsis (that means the small amount of Web data can be sent to any XML-compatible device, such as a cell phone, pager, or handled computer, without a lengthy download process)

If you're using a feed reader, you can click on the links marked with the RSS feed symbol at the top of any page.

Newer browsers like Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox make subscribing much easier by showing the RSS feed symbol either on a toolbar (IE7) or in the address bar (Firefox) indicating an available feed. Clicking on that symbol will subscribe you to the feed using your favourite reader.

If you're using other software that can read RSS feeds , you can click on the links to the feeds above, copy the address and paste it into the software's request for the feed's address.
