ConnectSouthside is proud to offer this useful tool to keep current with what is happening in the community: RSS Feeds.
“RSS” stands for “Really Simple Syndication,” which sounds like what it is - a “headline news” for websites, blogs, etc. that choose to broadcast summaries or full text stories to subscribers. Sites that provide RSS feeds typically display the icon on the page or in the address line in a browser.
All that is required is a “reader,” which can be browser or desktop-based and allows you to create your own custom page of feeds or desktop ticker with timely updates from the sites you choose.
ConnectSouthside now broadcasts RSS feeds for the following content as it is updated on the site:
· Community Events
· Nonprofit/Government Jobs
· Funding Opportunities
· Items Needed
· Reports and Data
· Nonprofit Management Best Practices, Tools and Resources
· Volunteer Opportunities
To subscribe, click on the RSS icon on ConnectSouthside where you can see the available feeds as well as link to free readers. Be the first to know when opportunities to help the community or your organization are posted.
