Increasing zoom by reducing resolution

I read somewhere (a while back) that one can increase zoom by decreasing the pixel dimensions that a camera is set at.

If I’m remember that correctly, I have a couple of questions:

1.  How does that work?  Why does reducing the pixel dimensions allow for greater zoom?

2.  I presume that the “greater zoom” is digital zoom. Yes?
