About RSS news feeds
News feeds allow you to see content from selected websites as soon as it is added. You receive the latest stories in one place, as soon as they are published. News feeds are delivered via RSS ("really simple syndication"), using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats.
RSS content can be read using software called an "RSS reader," "feed reader" or "aggregator." The user subscribes to a feed by entering its link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon to initiate the process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds. Newer versions of popular web browsers will display the news feed as a webpage, or allow you to subscribe by adding the site as a "live" bookmark.
Most sites that offer feeds use this familiar orange button , but some may have a normal web link, or other symbols, often referred to as "chiclets," representing services that offer news feed capabilities (e.g., Yahoo).
