RSS Feeds


AFLINK news and information is available through RSS feeds, which use a technology called XML to deliver headlines and summaries to your desktop or Web browser. RSS feeds, like podcasts, when used in conjunction with an RSS reader, will automatically update with the latest content at set intervals so that you do not have to visit AFLINK to check for the latest news. RSS feeds are different from podcasts as they do not contain audio.


RSS Feeds: Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I use RSS?

    Special news readers, called "RSS Readers" or "RSS Aggregators," are required for you to be able to use RSS feeds. Options for news readers are varied, and they include stand-alone applications, plug-ins for mail clients and built-in applications such as web browsers and other web-based services.

  • Why use RSS?

    RSS is an easy way to gather a wide variety of content in one place on your computer. Rather than visiting many websites to find out if there is new content, the RSS aggregator shows it to you in one screen. Many RSS readers also alert you when new content from your favorite website is delivered.
