More information on RSS

What is RSS?

Rich Site Summary (RSS) or as some refer to it, Real Simple Syndication, is an XML-based format for content distribution in real time. RSS feeds will include the date, title, summary and a link to the full news article. If after reading a summary you want to view the full text, simply link to the full text document.

Why use RSS?

There are a number of benefits to using RSS, including:

  • You select what news you want. RSS allows you to select the type of news and information you receive from websites.
  • You determine when you get your news. Once you download your news reader, you can customize it to go and fetch the news every five minutes, or every hour - depending on how you want it.
  • Cut down on spam. Because RSS requires you to download a news reader, you aren't subscribing to e-mail lists, which can increase your risk of getting unsolicited (spam) e-mail.

News aggregators / News readers

There are various RSS news aggregators / news readers available for free download or for purchase on the Internet.

For more details on RSS, try this useful FAQ or the RSS specification.
