Interesting RSS Feeds More Than Just News
(Page 1 of 4 )
The core use for RSS is generally considered news headlines and blog syndication, but innovative businesses are learning to use RSS in different ways.Consider RSS as a communication channel that can provide current, targeted information as it appears within a very targeted audience.
Google Groups is a free online community and discussion group service that offers the Web's most comprehensive archive of Usenet postings. Google Groups can be monitored using RSS feeds. In order to monitor a specific newsgroup simply add "/feed/msgs.xml" to the end of the Google Group URL. Add the new URL to a newsgroup reader and receive updates each time a new post is added to the newsgroup.
Example Feed: http://groups.google.com/group/alt.comp.shareware.authors/feed/msgs.xml
Build a calendar for public or private use and receive calendar updates via an RSS feed. Calendars can be created for personal reminders to pay bills or attend social functions. Calendars can also be used for specific groups like schools, sporting events, or industry events. The calendar can be syndicated and shared using RSS feeds.
