Alamo Area Council RSS Feeds
Subscribe to the Alamo Area Council’s RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds to get Alamo Area Council news delivered directly to your desktop or mobile device! RSS is a new media technology you can use to have information sent to you, rather than having to go look for it. Many Web sites, including the Alamo Area Council, offers RSS as a way to have headlines delivered to you.
What is RSS?
RSS technology is used to create a "feed" (list) of headlines that you can have delivered to you. For example, when we publish new headlines in an area of the website that supports RSS, those headlines can be added to a feed that you can subscribe to. (Note that not every headline that goes up on our website will automatically be sent to you. What you receive may vary depending on how we update the feed.)
RSS feeds enable you to get update notifications delivered directly to your desktop through the news aggregator software program of your choice. RSS offers convenience because you can subscribe to feeds from several Internet sites and automatically pull together headlines from all the sources into one list. This lets you quickly browse the list of new content without visiting each site.
How do I access RSS?
In order to receive RSS feeds, you need an RSS reader. You then subscribe to the Web site from which you want to receive content, and the information will be delivered automatically to your RSS reader.
Here are the steps
- Choose a news reader, THEN organize and read your content. Many are available on the Internet. (as of January 2014, Feedly.com is one of the most recommended free readers.) Some are stand alone programs and others are plug-ins for software such as Microsoft Outlook. Still others are built-in to web services such as Google, Yahoo! and MSN (Note: Google Reader is being discontinued). News reader capabilities may also be built in to your web browser. Follow the prompts offered by your RSS reader to complete the subscription.
- Use your RSS reader to read news when it arrives and click headline links to get the full article back on our website.
