Feed Crier Provides RSS and Atom Feeds By Instant Message

image Give your readers the power of instant alerts from your web site. By partnering with Feed Crier, your readers will always know when you update your site — even if they don’t use a news reader.

And it won’t cost you a thing.

Feed Crier is an IM bot that delivers real-time RSS feed updates to your desktop over popular instant messaging protocols. For end users, no account creation is necessary — just send a message to the bot (screen name “feedcrier”) containing a feed URL and start getting feed alerts. Basic services are free, with premium services costing just a few dollars a month.

imageThere's nothing to download or install, no spam, and never any spyware.

If you want to give your site’s readers an easy way to subscribe by IM, there’s a little “Add this feed to Feed Crier” button available. It's very easy to add it to your web site. You probably have noticed it on i-Stuff. Well, its nothing but a simple java script which you have to put on your blog or website.


Just paste the following code right into your site:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://feedcrier.com/widgets/subscribebutton.js"></script>

You can get it from here also.
