RSS feed is now live!
3rd September 2011
RSS (originally RDF Site Summary) has become known as "Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary", a web feed format that enables people to subscribe to certain blogs, news or anything that is of interest and regularly updated on the internet, giving the user information that informs of a recent update being posted.
Through clicking on the icon the user subscribes and an RSS reader appears on their choosen browser. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds. RSS allows users to avoid manually inspecting all of the websites they are interested in, and instead subscribe to websites such that all new content is pushed onto their browsers when it becomes available.
Culture Colony now offers an RSS feed for the News and for ArtLogs. There are more feeds to come soon and as the site grows with more members using the facilities available here we will begin to introduced more focused and targeted RSS feed facilities so that RSS feed subscriptions are tailoured to the members interests.
Last week we also introduced a login facility that enables members to use their Facebook or Twitter accounts to login to Culture Colony. This shared login means that once you're logged in to one of these social networks you are also logged into Culture Colony where you can find creative content within a 'cultural' community without all the fuss and distraction found on the more 'social' side of your online experience. For current members who wish to login with these methods they can do so by linking their account via the 'Account Settings' page.
Click on the RSS feed icon to subscribe and follow the News or ArtLogs on Culture Colony.
