What’s the difference between subscribing by RSS or Email?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a technology that allows organizations to deliver news to a desktop computer or other Internet device. By subscribing to RSS feeds, users can easily stay up-to-date with areas of the Plant and Pest Advisory site that are of interest.
The Plant and Pest Advisory offers several RSS feeds for use in an RSS reader or RSS-enabled Web browser. RSS feeds consist of a headline, brief summary, and a link that leads back to the web site for more information. An RSS reader collects and displays RSS feeds, allowing you to scan headlines from a number of news sources in a central location. Some browsers have built-in RSS readers; some RSS readers are free stand-alone programs. Feedly lists a number of options for various operating systems and browsers.
The Plant and Pest Advisory offers you the very same information in either an RSS feed or by email. The difference is the RSS will go to your RSS reader while the email will go to your inbox. You may find one is more convenient or easier to use than the other. For example, RSS feeds won’t get trapped in your email spam filter. On the other hand, you may prefer to have all information go to your email inbox.
