What does RSS mean diagram

Feeds are also known as RSS. The technical acronym for RSS is "Really Simple Syndication", an XML format that was created to syndicate news, and be a means to share content on the web. It is a way online for you to get a quick list of the latest story headlines from all your favorite websites and blogs all in one place.

Suppose you have 50 sites and blogs that you like to visit regularly. Going to visit each website and blog everyday could take you hours. With RSS, you can "subscribe" to a website or blog, and get "fed" all the new headlines from all of these 50 sites and blogs in one list.

How do I start using feeds?

In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications.

Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want it to receive. For example, if you would like the latest Tesco Diets Diet and Nutrition headlines, simply go to the list of feeds in top right hand corner and you will notice an orange button on the left hand side of the Diet and Nutrition list item.

If you click on the button you can subscribe to the feed in various ways, including by dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your news reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your news reader.

RSS as Live Bookmarks

Browsers like Safari and Firefox allow you to subscribe to RSS feeds through the browser, and it’s called “live bookmarking”. Currently, you can only do live bookmarking in Internet Explorer if you have IE7. The limitation with using RSS in live bookmark form is that you only have access to your RSS list from the computer you created the bookmarks on. For the flexibility of complete accessibility then go the RSS Reader route.
