"RSS is a "techie" acronym for Really Simple Syndication
or Rich Site Summary, depending on who you talk to, the time of day and
the day of the week. Also referred to as an RSS feed or XML feed, this
protocol is an application of XML that provides an open method of syndicating
(or distributing) and aggregating Web content."
In other words, RSS allows internet publishers to
deliver and distribute their content summaries and links in such a manner
that they can be read on special easy-to-use software, news
aggregators, or implemented on other
web sites to deliver links to their latest content in the most accessible
format today, XML.
How it works?
1. You first
need an RSS reader, which is special
software you can mostly get for free. A list of readers is available
2. You can now start
adding new content feeds to your
reader. Whenever you see an image saying RSS Content Feed (or RSS, XML,
Syndicate this, etc.) you can, if this indeed is the correct link, add
the content feed in to your reader.
Click on the link and then open your RSS reader and add a new chanell.
(for more instructions on how to add RSS feeds to your reader, please
see the instructions for the software you chose).
3. RSS feeds are actually just XML
files that your reader will regulary check to see
if they've changed from the last time you read them. It will then display
the new links and content summaries (in some cases even full-text versions)
and allow you to click through to read complete articles in its browser.
