What is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a file format used to let you know when a certain website or part of a website (e.g. latest news page, blog) has been updated with new content. The service that alerts you about these updates is called an RSS feed. RSS feeds can be read in a program called a feed reader or aggregator.
Why use RSS?
Using RSS allows you to easily stay informed with different sources of online news and information. You can save time using RSS because you don’t need to visit individual websites or pages to check for updates—the latest content will be found and displayed for you.
