|What is RSS?
RSS stand for Really Simple Syndication, and is for sharing information. Think
of it as a news ticker like the ones you'd see on old movies. Adding RSS feeds
to your browser or other software allows you to create your own news ticker
made up of as many RSS feeds as you like. RSS is used by sites to share,
notify, and syndicate the content in a simple form.
Why Use RSS?
Imagine having the latest information from your favorite web sites delivered to
you in a really simple way without you having to visit the web sites just to
find out if there are updates, or signing up for newsletters. Thatís what RSS
enables you to do!
Once you've set up the RSS feed, the headlines or summaries will update
automatically for you. You get the latest information from as many web sites as
you subscribe to. Then if something interests you, you click an individual
headline to go to the full information. Setting up RSS is really simple. Try it
for yourself using the tips below.
