Really simply syndication (RSS) feeds are a great way to save time, and stay updated on the latest information from your favourite websites. When you set up an RSS feed in HootSuite, you have the ability to take an RSS feed from any site and update it to your social network accounts automatically. Not only will this save you time and effort, but it will also make your social network accounts a hotspot for the latest news.

To add an RSS/Atom Feed

1.  Click the gear (Settings) icon on the left-aligned launch menu.
