Get Graphic RSS Feeds

To stay updated with Get Graphic via a newsreader or feed aggregator, there are three XML feeds available for you to subscribe to:

What is a RSS Feed?

RSS (known colloquially as "Really Simple Syndication") is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel", contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.

RSS content can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader" or an "aggregator". The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.

How do I Read a Feed?

RSS readers or news aggregators allow users to view content from specified sources (RSS feeds). The information is automatically updated and displays the newer information on top. There are a plethora of RSS "news readers" accessible on the World Wide Web. Each reader offers a unique set of features so it is a matter of preference as to which "aggregator" is right for you. Below is a list of some web-based news readers:

  • Bloglines - a free service that makes it easy to keep up with your favorite blogs and newsfeeds. With Bloglines, you can subscribe to the RSS feeds of your favorite blogs, and Bloglines will monitor updates to those sites. You can read the latest entries easily within Bloglines.
  • FeedBucket - provides a quick and easy way to view RSS feeds. No need for any fancy software or programming - just enter an address to view the headlines. Registered users can store several feeds and view each feed individually or all of the recent top headlines at a glance in a "River of News" format. FeedBucket will also generate some JavaScript code so you can easily add automatically updating headlines to your own blog or website.
  • Google - makes it easier to keep up with your ever-expanding reading list of content from across the web. You can Automatically get the latest news and updates from your favorite sites. Sort your reading list based on what's most relevant to you. Organize what you read with labels and stars. Quickly share interesting items with friends via email or by blogging them, directly from Reader.
  • Yahoo! - allows you to subscribe to any RSS feed.
