The link to the RSS feed can be found under the RSS 2.0 icon on the SNS web pages. Your RSS aggregator help files should contain instructions for subscribing to news channels.

Some web browsers, for example Firefox, support 'live bookmarks' that update themselves automatically with the latest news.
