Proper Use of RSS Feed

    I had thought RSS feed capsules were meant to display our latest hubs.  Now I am finding that links can only be sited if they directly relate to the subject of the hub.

    What is the purpose of the RSS feed capsule and it's appropriate use?

      I often will use an RSS feed if I want to have like a google news feed associated to my page cause it warrants having some relevant current news.  Search the topic in google news, scroll to the bottom, click rss and grab the url and use that for this purpose.

      If you had another blog or wanted to link in articles from a specific website you can enter the rss feed url here to have a group of recent stories from whatever source you are selecting.

    Since all feeds and links have to be relevant to the hub, you'll need to create an RSS feed that picks up only hubs you wrote on a particular topic.

    Details of how to do it here:

      Thank you.  I did not realize that this was even possible.

    The best use of rss is to use it for auto tweeting and auto facebook updates, big_smile

      Hmmm?  This is a new concept to me.  What does it mean "auto Tweet" or "auto FB"? Will the reader's accounts pick up your hub?  How does that work...or are you just teasing me? smile
