  • What is RSS?
    RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary.
    It is a web page with a .xml file type that can be subscribed to and read by a newsreader (aggregator). The aggregator will find the new content and display it when it becomes available.
    Newsreaders (sometimes called aggregators) are very easy to find and use (stand alone applications or through a web browser).
    In essence, it is content that comes to you, instead of having to search for it. It will save you an infinite amount of time.
