What is an RSS Feed?

Really Simple Syndication or RSS is a web feed used to publish frequently updated content. An RSS document or "feed" includes full or summarised text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds track all kinds of news provided by a family of sources. The benefit to readers is the timely update of favoured websites and the fact that readers can aggregate all feeds in one single place. The news come as a headline and a brief summary, which when followed, take the reader to the full article.

How to read RSS feed?

RSS feeds can be read using software such as an "RSS reader", "Feed reader" or an "aggregator". These readers can be web-based, off-line based or mobile device based. The user subscribes to a feed by entering the XML file (which allows the information to be published in different formats) into the reader of choice, or by clicking on the RSS icon in a web browser, which will initiate the subscription process.

There are two ways in which to read an RSS feed; standalone applications (desktop based), or a plug-in for your email and web-browser applications. The standalone application uses a program specifically for reading feeds and sits on your desktop. The plug-in option uses your existing email and web application, where the reader becomes a new component of that application.
