RSS Explained Quickly

During early days it was quite time-taking and difficult to keep track of your favorite website. ‘Bookmark’ was the only option; you had to bookmark a website and keep visiting all the bookmarked websites manually to see the new updates. If you forgot to check a website means you missed the information. 

To resolve all these, a new technology has been developed called RSS which is currently used by millions of web users in order to keep track of every single update in their favorite websites.

What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary; often called Really Simple Syndication) uses a family of standard web feed formats to publish frequently updated informations: blog entries, news headlines, audio, video. An RSS document (called “feed”, “web feed”) includes full or summarized text, and metadata, like publishing date and author’s name.

RSS Feed

RSS helps readers to manage the websites they visit, every single update is notified to readers and they don’t miss the information. It helps you to get the published information quickly when you ‘Subscribe’ to the website’s RSS (Often, News Feed). 

How to Use?

To get all the RSS updates readers need to have a RSS Feed Reader like Feedly (Most Popular), Feedbin, Fever etc.
Readers can add RSS Feed of multiple websites and get notified of all at once. 

You can get the RSS feed of a particular website on the website itself.
