News feeds are a way to browse Web content with software that you download free of charge. This software is called a news reader, or an RSS reader, since news feeds use a technology called RSS (Real Simple Syndication).
Your reader alerts you to new Web content by displaying the title of the page, a brief summary of its contents, and a link to the full article. This allows you to browse articles from multiple Web sites within your reader, rather than visiting each site individually.
You can subscribe to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center press releases by selecting a Web-based Reader from our Feedburner.com feed. Just follow the steps below:
Click (or control-click for Mac users) on the small, rectangular orange icon with the label “RSS”.
You will be directed to http://feeds.mskcc.org/mskcc/press_releases, shown below.
- Select a Web-based news reader from the box labeled “Subscribe Now!,” shown above.
