RSS an easy guide
What is RSS
RSS a great, and simple, way for you to bring content from all over the web to an easy to browse location - whether that's a media player like iTunes or a " feed reader", a kind of email inbox for the web.
Just like you might subscribe to the magazines or cable TV channels that interest you most, RSS allows you to subscribe to web content - be that news headlines, weather reports, podcasts or blog posts - and have that content delivered to you. No more visiting twenty different websites to check if they've been updated - with RSS, you are notified the minute new material arrives that might be of interest to you.
Whether you want to get up-to-the-minute updates, find out what bloggers and reviewers are writing about, or just create a custom filtered collection of the news that misses out all of the things you have no interest in, RSS can make a great deal of difference to how you use the web. In this guide you'll learn how.
The simplest reason to use RSS is that it is going to save you time.
If you visit more than a couple of websites, follow the pictures, videos and public profiles of your friends and colleagues, or want to keep up to date about the newest trends and changes in your industry, you already have a compelling number of reasons to put RSS to use.
RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site's email newsletter. Watch YouTube RSS made simple
There is you, and there are your favorite websites. You log on to your computer, and you're looking for something new. You go to your favourite sites and blogs. Anything new? No. You go out to your favorite news sites. Anything new? Nope. Every time you look for something new and its not there, you've wasted valuable time. This is the old way.
Now, let's consider the new and fast way, which is simply taking these arrows and turning them the other direction. This means the new things from blogs and new things from your news sites come to you instead.
So, what we're talking about is using a single website that becomes your home for reading all the new stuff that's coming from your favorite websites.
