What are RSS and Atom? (Or how do I subscribe to an Infosys blog?)
Infosys blogs enables you to subscribe to our web feeds to spare yourself the trouble of having to visit our blog. Using a web feed allows you to see when any blog on Infosys blogs has added new content. You can get the latest posts and comments without having to remember to visit the site every day.
A web feed is a data format used to serve frequently updated content to users. RSS (an abbreviation for Really Simple Syndication) and Atom are the two main web feed formats.
Many websites have links labeled XML, RSS or Atom, or they may have an orange button ().
To read feeds from Infosys blogs, you need a feed reader. A feed reader is a tool that provides a new update every time one of your subscribed Infosys blogs updates its content. There are many online feed readers - examples: Feedburner, Bloglines, Google Reader, etc. You can also download some feed readers to your desktop.
You can either click the relevant links (e.g. the "add to my Yahoo!" button, if you're using My Yahoo!) or copy-paste the link into your feed reader. Sometimes, you will be able to click a button for your particular feed reader on the blog that will take you to the appropriate subscription page. Feed aggregators like Feedburner are designed to help you easily add new feeds (in a variety of formats) to your preferred feed reader.
