What is RSS?RSS stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’. Many people describe it as a ‘news feed’ that you subscribe to. RSS is a technology that is being used by millions of web users around the world to keep track of their favorite websites and blogs.
In the ‘old days’ of the web to keep track of updates on a website you had to ‘bookmark’ websites in your browser and manually return to them on a regular basis to see what had been added.
What if you could tell a blog to let you know every time it is updated? This is what RSS does for you.
RSS is a technology that provides you with a method of getting relevant and up to date information sent to you for you to read in your own time. It saves you time and helps you to get the information you want quickly after it was published. You don’t need an email to tell you when there is an update. You will know automatically was soon as it is published.
It’s almost like subscribing to a magazine that is delivered to your door, RSS feeds are delivered wherever you’d like to receive it – your iPad (or tablet), direct to your email client like Outlook or Thunder, or your phone. You can then read and download transmissions off line at your leisure.
How to Use RSS
Get an RSS Reader – The first thing you’ll want to do if you would like to use a RSS for the DNA Recoding information is to get a RSS Feed Reader. There are many feed readers going around with a variety of approaches and features – however a good place to start is to do a Internet search for a RSS Feed Reader for the device you’d like to receive the feed on. On such reader is Feedly.
Typically the feeds work a little like receiving emails. As you subscribe to the feed you’ll see that unread entries will be marked as bold. As you click on them you’ll see the latest update and can read it right there in the feed reader. You are given the option to click through to the actual site or move onto the next unread item – marking the last one as ‘read’.
