What is RSS?


RSS - Really Simple Syndication is a popular means of sharing content (such as news headlines) without requiring readers to constantly visit a Web site to see what's new. For more details Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, is a good place to visit.

How can I receive RSS feeds? - The first step is to install an RSS reader. There are many options. Here are a couple of suggestions:

For PC users: SharpReader

For MAC users: Shrook

For a web-based reader (no download required): Feedly or Feedreader
