RSS Feed and its differences and similarities.

We can create our own data feed which gives us the summaries of  posts like music, songs and any other download links for, the followers who are in need of such posts.

Advantages:

  • The latest updates can be obtained on finger tips, which is read by the RSS feed readers or aggregators by refreshing the RSS Feed.
  • We can remove the feed and edit the feeds as per the requirements.
  • The surfing time gets reduced as we get a list of related articles for a particular topic.
  • A feed of information is displayed on the users screen when an user  searches for the particular feed.
  • As subscription is not required,. the users doesn’t get frequent emails regarding the feeds. This prevents the junk emails.
  • In the same way if the user want to unsubscribe for an particular RSS Feed,  it does not ask for any unsubscribing questions to be answered by the user. It can be simply done by deleting the RSS Feed from Feed Reader.

 Disadvantages:

  • Articles posted in RSS Feed are mainly used by beginners in various fields and not by the experts.
  • These feeds contain much of explanations and less of interactive images and graphics.
  • It does not indicate the source of website from which this article is originating.
  • It is not supported by many subscribers as it is a  new way of marketing information.
  • It gives more importance on the topics which are of less use where the user needs brief description of such topics.
  • As the unsubscription is not required for the users and thereby the subscribers who post their feeds  are finding it difficult to put up with the reason behind unsubscription as this serves as a hindrance for their improvement process.

 How to Subscribe to RSS feeds?

1) Download a News Aggregators / RSS Reader

Note:

Feeds can also be viewed in our own desktop and it is the offline way of viewing feeds. Even desktop feeds are available with different features. Feeds can also be viewed in different formats as audio, video , text etc.

This device can also be used to update the status of the users profile in any of the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter with an active internet connection via Wi-Fi.

What are Plugins and its pros and cons?

PLUGINS

Plug-in is used to include specific abilities to our software application. It is also used to extend the functionality of a software.

The reasons for its usage:

  •  To enable third party developers to create abilities which extend an application.
  • To support easily, adding new features.
  • To reduce the size of an application.
  • To separate source codes from an application because of incompatible software licenses.

Application programming interfaces (APIs) provide a standard interface, allowing third parties to create plug-ins that interact with the host application. A stable API allows third-party plug-ins to continue to function as the original version changes and to extend the life-cycle of obsolete applications. The Adobe Photoshop and After Effects plug-in APIs have become a standard competing applications such as Corel Paint Shop Pro have adopted them.

Steps to download a sample word press plug-in:

I have downloaded mylivechat.com plug-in.

To do that, click the plug-in listed and register with the mylivechat.com (Free Trial Version) and it will provide a unique ID, username and password which will be listed in your website mylivechat.com window in your dashboard. Don’t forget to download the setup file in your system. Choose any drive other than C drive. You need to search for your mylivechat icon in your setup files and enter these details. That’s it. You can also test it by demo chat. You will be registered as admin.

Advantages:

  • The plug-ins makes our work easy and helps us to add additional functionality.
  • There are some plug-ins are available free of cost.
  • They are ensured virus free.

Disadvantages:

  • The plug-ins should be scanned for any virus using McAfee or any other anti-virus.
  • The plug-ins should not make any changes in your system and also in the software application to which it is added.
  • The plug-ins should not take much time to install which in turn may result in hanging of your system.
  • It should have high up time from the service provider and it should provide auto-update about its version.
