RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site's email newsletter.
he easiest way to create an rss feed is to use software. We suggest FeedForAll . or refer to the make rss feeds for a detailed description of feed creation.
Feeds can be viewed either online using a site like my yahoo or by downloading feed reading software.
RSS feeds are an opportunity to stay updated with the latest news, without visiting the sites where the information is provided. You will receive headlines, summaries or entire content, exactly the moment they get published. On top of that, you can read them on mobile devices (PDA, Smart Phone, Blackberry).
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.
RSS feed readers and news aggregators are essentially the same thing; both allow for viewing RSS feeds. News aggregators are designed specifically to view news related feeds but technically they can read any feeds.
