RSS — Really Simple Syndication

Getting fotolibra's Picture Calls and Newsletters without the unreliability of email

RSS is the simplest and safest way to access news and information from the internet's most reputable organizations such as the BBC, The Guardian, the New York Times and CNN — which is why fotolibra recommends it.

RSS means you can get fotolibra's Picture Calls and Newsletters fed directly to your computer desktop — without the uncertainty of email.

We regularly send out Picture Calls and Newsletters to over 25,000 registered contributors. So some ISPs mark us as spam and don't deliver our messages. But if you've signed up for our service, you need to hear from us.

RSS solves the problem and lets you decide on the content you want (e.g. data from fotolibra) and have it delivered directly to you. It means you can always be up-to-date with news and Picture Calls.

How do I get RSS feeds?

The first thing you need is a program called a News Reader. There are many different versions, some of which are incorporated in web browsers, and some of which are downloadable applications. The latest versions of Firefox, Opera, Safari and Chrome have the ability to pick up RSS feeds for you automatically. For more details on these, please check their websites.

There is a wide range of News Readers available, and new versions are appearing all the time. Different operating systems (Mac OS, Windows) need different News Readers, but they will supply the same news feeds.

Once you have chosen a News Reader, all you have to do is to click on 'Subscribe to fotolibra's RSS feed' on the lower right of the fotolibra home page.
