This page gives you access to all the currently available AIM news feeds and will explain all you need to know about them, how to use them, and what to do whenever you see the orange feed icon.
What are News Feeds?
News feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.
Feeds are also known as RSS which stands for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages designed to be read by a news reader application or certain browsers.
How do I start using the feeds?
In general, the first thing you need is a news reader. There are many different types, some of which are accessed using a browser and some which are downloadable applications.
Free browser based news readers, like Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and the latest version of Internet Explorer (version 7), allow you to subscribe to news feeds and view them using your browser. Other news readers are special applications that you may download or buy.
Subscribing to AIM news feeds
Once you have chosen your news reader you may subscribe to the AIM news feed in one of the following ways:
1. If you are using a browser based reader, use the link above and you will be given the option to subscribe through your chosen browser.
2. If you are using one of the downloadable news reader applications, click to choose the news feed above and simply copy and paste the URL from the address bar to your chosen news reader.
Alternatively you can simply drag and drop the orange feed icon to your news reader's address text box.
