What is an RSS feed?

RSS is a format used by a number of organisations to share news. You can subscribe to an 'RSS feed' and then use an 'RSS reader' to view the information in the feed. A feed is a URL (web address) which supplies the news upon request. A reader is a program which displays the news for you. Your reader may be on a website, an addon to your browser, part of your email program, or a stand-alone program.

More information:

The bookmarks feed is in RSS2 format. There are two feeds in each space:

  • A feed for the bookmarks saved in a particular space. This might be:
    • Your personal space, where you store all the bookmarks of interest to you, as well as the bookmarks you have sent to other people.
    • A global space, where you or other people store bookmarks relevant to that space.
  • A feed for the bookmarks labelled for a particular space. This might be:
    • Your personal space, where you can see the bookmarks other people have sent to you.
    • A global space, where you or other people have sent bookmarks relevant to that space.

To subscribe to the bookmarks saved in a particular space,

  1. Go to 'Browse' and select 'Bookmarks' from the dropdown list. The 'Space Bookmarks' screen will appear.
