We just added an RSS feed to the Traverse PC website! (The button you see here will take you to an RSS Feed page on our website.) We’re pretty excited about this for a few reasons. First, it allows you (the user) to have a one-stop portal for news about what’s going on at TPC. Second, it simplifies the sharing of TPC news on all of the social media platforms. (We currently share our RSS feed posts automatically on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+) Third, I hope to see a tool inside your Traverse PC program that will let you see the posts right there, whenever you want.
So, what is RSS? Believe it or not, it stands for Really Simple Syndication. OK, clear enough? It’s a simple way for people to see the news they want to see. I’m sure you’ve all seen Microsoft’s or Yahoo’s news feeds. Those rely on RSS feeds from various sources. That’s what we’ve added to our website.
So if you’re not familiar with RSS feeds, you may be asking yourself how you can access it without going onto our social media sites like Facebook (countless users have emphatically told me that they DON’T use social media). There are numerous ways to access RSS feeds from many different websites. What you choose to use will probably depend on which web browser you use (Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.). You can usually find a browser plug-in for RSS feeds but each browser has different plug-ins. There are also stand-alone RSS feed readers available. You can find more information about this on our Support page.
Check out TPC’s RSS feed. I think you’ll find it useful. It’s at http://traverse-pc.com/feed/
