An introduction to RSS Feeds

  • RSS, or Real Simple Syndication, is a technology that pushes out newly updated bits of content to programs that can read a special xml file of this content.
  • Using RSS to keep track of new posts to blogs, new issues of journals, and other news from around the web can be a great targeted and efficient means of staying up to date on whatever interests you.
  • In addition to tracking the feeds from sites that interest you, RSS readers often have the ability to suggest additional feeds that seem relevant to your interests based on the feeds to which you've already subscribed.
