What is an RSS feed?

Category: Computers & Internet


RSS is an acronym that stands for really simple syndication. An RSS feed is typically used to easily and automatically syndicate information that is often included in blogs, news, and other web content. It will commonly include excerpts with links to full articles from different publishers throughout the web. RSS feeds are most often written in XML-based file formats and displayed and gathered using a feed reading program or news aggregator. They are available in a wide variety of categories that can be tailored to suit the needs of any user but are most popular with news sites and blogs.
