RSS or "Really Simple Syndication" is a tool that allows you to choose the website content you want to read and have new articles and posts delivered immediately to your computer shortly after they appear on your favourite websites. Here at Barbados Free Press, we subscribe to hundreds of RSS feeds to keep up with worldwide news about Barbados, and we also publish our website in RSS format so our readers can receive our new posts immediately.
Governments & Businesses Also Subscribe To Barbados Free Press RSS
Many people in North America and Europe use RSS Reader Programs to "subscribe" to the Barbados Free Press. We also notice more than a few subscriptions going to Government offices and large businesses – not just in Barbados, but around the world. (Hello U.S. Department of State! Hello British Broadcasting Corporation!)
For April, our RSS feed subscriptions are up 347% over March, so many of our visitors are putting us on their automatic daily reading list. Thanks very much for the compliment!
Short & Simple Online Video About Using RSS
For our readers who are unfamiliar with RSS, we recommend a Cnet online tutorial (its free) "RSS – News You Choose". The article explains the technology and reviews the various RSS Reader programs. Some computers have an RSS Reader already installed. Maybe yours does – all you need to do is take two minutes to learn how to use it.
The Cnet series also includes an online Video Tutorial that takes only a few minutes to watch and will excite any web surfer about the possibilities of RSS. Check it out here.
