RSS Feeds and More

Our developers have been at it again, working late into the night for your benefit. The first thing you should know is that we have added E-Mail and Share buttons along with the Link and Flag buttons that are directly above a file when you are viewing in-browser. It looks like this:

These buttons make it extremely easy to e-mail, link, and share interesting creations with friends, family, co-workers or anyone else who may not fall into these categories. Clicking the E-Mail button automatically opens up boxes where you can type in anyone’s email address, type a message and of course tell the recipient who the e-mail is from.
Clicking the Share button displays another button that allows you to share product information from the site with any of your favorite social networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter and dozens more. Clicking on any of the icons where you have an account automatically takes you to the site you select and types in the appropriate YouPublish link you wish to share.
RSS feeds have also been added to the Files and People sections of YouPublish. Look for this icon  in the address bar at the top of your browser. You can use the YouPublish RSS feed to subscribe to new people and files on the site.
Subscribing to the People RSS feed will give you the latest 30 people to join YouPublish. Subscribing to the Files feed will give you the latest publications with their titles and their descriptions. Clicking on any of the publications or author names will take you directly to their respective pages. For those of you who aren’t very familiar with RSS feeds, essentially, when subscribed to, they automatically bring you all the news, site updates and/or blogs to one place, instead of you having to go search all around the internet looking them up.
RSS feeds are a great time saver that can help streamline your internet browsing. For a great tutorial on how RSS feeds work, click here.
