Well I have never really tried using RSS feed to follow blogs or any other website because I found it quite complicated or rather difficult to subscribe to any RSS Feed, without any proper instruction back then..
I was kinda reluctant to use RSS Feeds, or perhaps too lazy to do it, until it’s featured in iTalk Whoa..
RSS is short for “Really Simple Syndication”..
Now what’s the function or thing that RSS actually does?
RSS Feeds enable you to get news feeds and updates on any topics that interest you fast and easy..You don’t have to check or be on the lookout on what’s coming..
It delivers the headline, short summary and a link back to the full text every time an RSS news feed is updated..
How does it benefit you?
• If you have been worried about giving your name and email address to subscribe to any newsletter, the RSS feed in iTalk Whoa! has come to your rescue..Subscribing to RSS feed does not require you to do so..No more e-mails and no spams too..Your privacy is assured..
• You will get updates automatically on your iTalk Whoa’s account..
• For those who have got used to bookmaking pages, this is no longer necessary..
• If you are a content owner or publisher, you are able to distribute your contents without being sent to the junk folder..
Now let’s see how do we set up the RSS Feeds on the iTalk Whoa account..
First, click on the ‘New Group’ and put a name for your Category, say Blogs, News, Sports, etc..
Then on the Feed Description, you can put the name of the website you are following and then paste the URL of the site that is ‘feeding’ you..
Just click on ‘Add New’ after you have named the Feed Description and insert the RSS feed URL..
The system might have a bug that it will not refresh after you have add in the URLs..
Just logout and sign-in again every time you have edited or updated your RSS Feeds..
Once you are signed-in, expand the ‘Categories’ in the left panel and choose whichever feed that you want to see, click on it and the feeds will appear on the right panel..
It’s that easy..And the good thing is it will show the last 10 entries/posts/articles of the website that you’ve followed..
Now I can just check out the titles of the sites I’m following and there’s no need to bookmark them anymore!
This is like my favorite feature in iTalkWhoa and I like it a lot because it made it so easy..
It’s so easy that I don’t know how to redirect the feeds into my mail, or maybe too lazy to find out how, but in iTalkWhoa everything is laid out nicely and easy to do..
Maybe you would want to subscribe to my feed as well? My RSS Feeds can be subscribed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/jenkinyat..
