Week 2 RSS

  1. 1. Activity Two RSS
  2. 2. What is a RSS? • RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. • Put simply, it is a service to allow users to be notified about new content on a blog or website (MJA). • To read RSS content, known as RSS feeds, requires the use of software known as a feed reader, aggregator or RSS reader. This software can be accessed as a free web-application such as Bloglines or Google Reader or it can be downloaded to your computer. Newer web browsers such as Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox are now incorporating RSS readers as a standard feature. • By using RSS feeds you only need to visit the one site, your feed reader to gain updated information from your nominated websites instead of visiting each site individually. • RSS feeds can easily identified by the use of a standardised RSS symbol.
