News Feeds and Feed Readers: What, Why and How?
News Feeds are online content sent to you from a website.
To receive News Feeds you must have a feed reader, often called an aggregator,
installed on your computer or your web browser.
With a Feed Reader installed, you will be able to subscribe to your favourite
website and receive content in any format.
Feed reading is a pull technology, which means you have to go get it.
This is different from an email list (push technology), which sends the
content to you automatically.

News Feeds and Feed Readers make it easier for you to keep track of a large
number of your favorite Web sites or blogs, without having to remember to
check each site manually or clutter your email Inbox. You can now customize
your online experience by subscribing to specific content feeds and aggregating
this information in one place to be read when you're ready.
