What is RSS?
One of the biggest shifts in communications since the Web is Syndication feeds. They have become a standard tool on the Web. But when you enter the world of syndicated content, you're often faced with the question of what is the "proper" way to do syndication.
RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites, news-oriented community sites, and personal blogs.
But it's not just for news. We’re talking about Audio, Video and Text. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS.
Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.
RSS-enabled sites provide RSS feeds that list article headlines, summaries and links back to the latest full-text articles on the web.
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication and Rich Site Summary.
Webmasters create an RSS file containing headlines and descriptions of specific information.
While the majority of RSS feeds currently contain news headlines or breaking information the long term uses of RSS are broad.
We are using RSS for things such as Vintage Releases, Tasting Notes, Press Reviews and Pod casts.
