Really Simple Syndication

RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It is a way of dis­trib­uting information, such as press releases, in a form computers can process. RSS enables users to subscribe to updates, in­clud­ing multi-media files, from a certain website. It feeds content directly onto the subscriber's computer or onto a website and is a convenient and automatic way of allowing subscribers to receive all the latest updates.

To subscribe to an RSS feed, you will need a feed reader. Some readers can be downloaded free on the internet. They can be configurated to meet the user's specifications. Users can decide themselves what websites are to be scanned and they can choose to see either the headline or the first few lines of an article along with a link to the full article, which can then be accessed via their internet browser.
