Subscribing to RSS feeds is a great way to keep up with relevant articles for your Newsfeed Blog assignment. RSS can automatically collect stories from non-governmental organizations, mainstream news outlets, and blogs, and lets you read them in the feed reader of your choice. RSS readers include services such as Feedly and Digg Reader, as well as mobile apps like Flipboard. You can Tweet to @L_humanitarians directly from the RSS readers. Email software such as Mozilla Thunderbird and Microsoft Outlook also handle RSS feeds.
