CNW Group uses Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to help keep you updated with just the news you need. We index everything that crosses the wire and group news into RSS feeds categorized by subject, category and industry headings. A compilation that includes a list of all of today's releases is also available. You can subscribe to the feeds you're interested in and have the latest news delivered directly to your inbox or RSS feed reader. If you're new to RSS, we recommend watching this video, RSS in Plain English, to help you understand.

Similarly, watching Twitter in Plain English will give you more of an idea of what Twitter is about.

What is RSS?

RSS is a machine-readable content-syndication specification. This allows content to be retrieved by computer programs (called 'readers' or 'aggregators', see below) that then deliver it to you. In other words, instead of going to a website to read the latest news, the content comes to you. Even better, RSS allows you to bring together the content from several different sites in one single location (a single web-page or a desktop application).
RSS comes in two main flavours, RSS 1.0 (RDF or Rich Site Summary) and RSS 2.0 (Really Simple Syndication). Although there are key differences between the two standards, in most instances the distinction is transparent to the end user.
Check out the online video RSS in Plain Language. It does a fantastic job of explaining RSS and RSS readers.

How do I use it?

RSS content is commonly referred to as a 'feed'. This is simply an XML (EXtensible Markup Language) file containing a list of available content. Simply copy (right-click the link and select 'copy link location') and paste the feed's web address into your favourite reader to subscribe. Once subscribed, the reader software periodically checks the feed for new content and downloads any updates it finds.

Which reader should I use?

There are numerous readers available for different platforms. Some, such as Google Reader, are web-based and don't require you to install any software on your machine. Others, such as Mozilla FireFox supports RSS feed bookmarking, are integrated into browsers and still others, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, are stand-alone programs. Choose the one you are most comfortable with and it will likely be compatible with the majority of RSS formats.

What version of RSS does CNW Group use?

CNW Group supports RSS version 2.0. It is the most popular format with the widest support among both RSS distributors and client programs.

What is Twitter?

Twitter is a microblogging platform that allows users to post 140-character messages known as 'Tweets.' It is increasingly being cited as a source of breaking news, and since winning an award at the South By Southwest conference in 2007, the number of people using the service to communicate has exploded.

How is CNW Group using Twitter?

CNW Group is using a series of Twitter accounts to distribute client news. These accounts publish news releases from our categorized RSS feeds, enabling Twitter users to follow them and be alerted when another release is issued by CNW Group.

Members of the news media are reminded that CNW Group RSS feeds are not delivered in real time. You may experience a maximum delay of up to 15 minutes. As such, RSS feeds should not be considered an equivalent to the dedicated CNW Group feed received by your news organization. Our Twitter accounts utilize our RSS feeds, and are similarly delayed.
