What is RSS?

  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a format that is used for distributing web content. Subscribe to feeds using a web browser or client program of your choice to be notified of updates to the content of those feeds.

Benefits of RSS:

  • Easily locate information from multiple feeds in a single location.
  • You control what feeds are displayed; there are no mailing lists to unsubscribe from.
  • Updated content is delivered automatically with no need to scan for new material.
  • Read condensed or summary information with clearly marked and dated topic material.
  • Classify and categorize information according to your preferences.

How can I use RSS?

  • Many web browsers allow you to view or bookmark feeds without ever leaving your browser. To begin viewing feeds within your browser, simply click on the RSS feed link; if your browser supports this format, you will be able to view, bookmark, and sometimes sort articles.
  • Programs (both free and commercial) known as feed aggregators allow you to collect, display, update, and manage feeds.
  • Incorporate feeds directly into your weblog.
