What are news feeds and how do I use them?

Atom is an open standard used to subscribe to updates from web sites. Just about every news site and blog offers this service to their visitors. As a user, you curate a list of the sites and topics that interest you in a news reader program. Since it is an open standard, there are hundreds of programs and services available to consume Atom.

In general terms, you copy a link to an news feed and paste it into your news reader. Links to feed on this site has a standard orange icon next to them. Your news reader will then fetch new updates periodically and present them to you as a list or personalized magazine.

Some recommended cost‐free news readers for the popular platforms: Newsblur (web, Android, iOS), Liferea (Linux), Newsflow (Windows), and Vienna (OS X). There are hundreds of other options, so just look around if these recommendations does not feed right for you.
