What is RSS?

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication.” It is a format for publishing frequently updated web-based content.This content is pulled, aggregated and displayed in a program called an “RSS reader.”

There are a wide variety of RSS readers to choose from on the Internet; some of the most popular are available from Google, Yahoo, Newsgator and Bloglines.
The latest versions of all major internet browsers and email applications have a RSS reader included in their software.

Internet visitors can customize their readers to pull content from whichever RSS feeds they find of interest.

How do people read RSS feeds?

Reading feeds is similar to using a radio. The station sends out programs and you need a radio set to pick up their shows.

RSS has become so mainstream that all the browsers now read RSS.

The personalized pages of search engines have a reader built right in. You can read RSS feeds with an iGoogle page or a MyYahoo page. Some people prefer to use a separate RSS reader.

There are Web-based readers like Bloglines. There are also downloadable newsreaders you can install on your desktop. Some, like Pluck, are free. Others, like NewsGator, have a cost attached.

Newsreaders offer a variety of special features, including combining several related feeds into a single view, hiding items that the viewer has already seen, and categorizing feeds and items.

Once you set up your reader with your preferences, it will collect the feeds you're interested in every time there is an update.
