RSS (Real Simple Syndication) gives Internet users an easy way to keep up with the latest information being published on their favorite websites. An RSS "feed" consists of headlines from stories that have been recently published, a short synopsis and a link to the rest of the story. You can organize RSS content from multiple websites in one convenient location, making it easier to stay updated without having to surf each individual site.
In order to take advantage of RSS feeds, you will need to use a news reader - a program that makes it possible to collect and view RSS feeds in one convenient location. They work by periodically retrieving and displaying updates to each subscribed site's feed. Most news readers are programs that must be downloaded and installed onto your computer, but there are also some web-based options available as well.
