What is RSS?

RSS is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on Web sites you like. Instead of checking your favorite Web sites to see if they've written a new article or feature, you can use RSS (which stands for Really Simple Syndication) to get them to tell you every time they have something new.

www.oaoa.com now offers RSS feeds (or channels) for most of its sections.

How can I make use of RSS?

Generally, you need to have a program called a News Reader. This will display RSS feeds from your chosen Web sites on your computer.

All you have to do is choose which RSS feeds you want, for instance an RSS feed of all the latest local news from www.oaoa.com.
