What is RSS?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a web-feed format used to publish frequently updated content such as news articles. RSS feed content can be read using software called a RSS reader or an aggregator. Subscribing to a feed is as simple as entering the feed's link into the reader. The reader checks subscribed feeds on a regular basis for new content and updates accordingly.
