An RSS, or Really Simple Syndication feed, is a small web program that allows a site to publish news or blog headlines and text on the Internet, which can be picked up by a "reader" or "aggregator" and displayed on your web browser or desktop.
RSS feeds are great ways to receive information you want from sites that you like, without spending valuable time site hopping, or clogging your inbox with email.
There are multiple readers and browsers that will be compatible with your computer system. For a detailed list, from browsers to handhelds, and more, check out the Open Directory Project.
Each reader is slightly different, however most readers use the following process:
Click the icon of link that will appear near the news announcement. There may also be an RSS icon in your browser address window, that you can click. This will take you to an RSS feed page for that site. Copy the site URL (web address) and paste it into the area of the reader that says something like "add new…" The RSS reader should then begin to display the RSS feeds from that site as they update.
