What is RSS?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It is a way to easily
distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and media to an
audience of users. An RSS feed is used by an RSS Reader that organizes
headlines and notices for easy reading.
What are RSS Feeds?
An RSS Feed is a document containing a listing of a website's new
content. This document is updated when new content is published to the
site. Feeds are gathered and read by RSS feed readers (also called
What is an RSS Reader?
RSS readers "subscribe" to RSS feeds, which means they download
lists of content at an interval that the user specifies (every 30
minutes, for example). All RSS feeds have a link back to the website,
so if the user sees new content they like, they can jump to
the website to read it.
RSS Feeds allow you to easily check if there is a new show or event that you might want
to see. You just need to subscribe to the appropriate RSS feed, and the information can be
retrieved automatically at regular intervals or instantly with the touch of a button.
How can I use RSS?
RSS is simple to use. All you need is a Feed Reader and the location of a few feeds to get started.
There are many free readers available now, and in some cases there might be one built into your browser.
Commercial Feed Readers are also available for users who might want a few more features.
Once you have selected a reader, you will be required to tell it the URL of the feed you want to
subscribe to. Some readers can automatically detect feeds.
Which Feed Reader should I use?
To get started, we recommend Awasu or Sharpreader. For an in-browser feed reader, try Sage for Mozilla or Google Reader, which works with most modern browsers. All these readers are free and easy to use.
