What is RSS?
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 whomever wants it.
Benefits of RSS
RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web.
RSS allows a person to easily stay informed by retrieving summaries of the latest content from sites they may be interested in.
Time is saved because a person can “subscribe” to a website so the information comes to them, rather than them having to visit each website individually. The risk of spamming or privacy violations is eliminated because one do not need an email account to subscribe and no personal information is transmitted.
How do I subscribe to RSS feeds?
An RSS feed is usually indicated by the RSS logo ().
To utilise RSS, you will require a RSS news reader or a compatible browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
If you prefer a news browser, there are many available and most are free. Some news readers are programs to be downloaded and installed on your computer (such as Sharp Reader) and others are web-based services that you can access with your web browser.
To subscribe to an RSS feed, right-click on the RSS hyperlink and select “Copy Shortcut” or “Copy Link Location” to copy the location URL, and then paste it into the appropriate place in your News Reader. Follow the instructions for your particular news reader.
