    • WHAT IS RSS? “RSS (most commonly translated as quot;Really Simple Syndicationquot;) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format.[2] An RSS document (which is called a quot;feedquot;, quot;web feedquot;,[3] or quot;channelquot;) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship. Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.
