Get notified immediately when a MyLists page is updated. The power is in one little click with a fancy acronym.

R.S… What?

On Monday, I threw out a term (Subscribe to MyLists with RSS) which you may or may not have heard of before. RSS? Think about it like Really Simple Sharing.

What does it do?

It let’s websites share information. Instead of waking up in the morning and checking a whack of websites, you can subscribe once, and let the site come to you.

All you need to do, is goto the MyLists page you want to follow, and click on “[RSS feed for this page]”. Then you can bookmark it or subscribe to it.

Bookmark it.

If you bookmark the RSS page, your web browser will indicate in your bookmark bar that the MyLists has changed: something new, or something updated.

Subscribe to it.

Email programs like Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird will allow you to get new listings like email. Or you can use a newreader application like Google Reader.

Share It.
MyLists isn’t the only page with this feature. All our categories have it. Just look for this link
