Using News Feeds
All departments of the Southeastern Website may choose to utilize News feeds. With a News feed in place, users may create announcements or news articles which
will automatically publish to multiple destinations at once, such as their department's
website and corresponding Facebook page.
OU Campus uses Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to achieve this. Simply put, RSS is a web format which allows for automatic distribution of a single source (a web page or news article) to anywhere or anyone who "subscribes" to that source's feed.
For example, a user who subscribes to the RSS feeds of CNN, ESPN, and The Lion's Roar could read all of those sources' latest news headlines from one place without having to visit each of their websites individually.
Similarly, users who manage Facebook pages can set up their pages to "pull" news items from RSS feeds of their choosing. More on RSS feeds.
