What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a format that automatically brings new content from your favorite websites to your desktop.
Web pages with frequently updated information will generate a separate data 'feed' with new items' titles and short descriptions. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, you can access these updates without having to go to the websites.
How can you use RSS?
You can either bookmark the RSS feed or you can get a news reader (or aggregator) that collects updates from your favorite websites, blogs, or news outlets.
You can use a web-based news reader or you can install a downloadable application. Well-known free web-based aggregators are My Yahoo!, and Feedly.
Some popular desktop applications are:
When you've selected a reader, subscribe to the feed by
- clicking on the orange button (as RSS feeds are usually identified by a button with the label RSS or XML, or with the RSS icon ( );
- dragging the URL (the web address) of the RSS feed into your news reader; or
- cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.
