What is an RSS Feed?

 

To save yourself time and have all your favorite sites with current news in one place, you can do it with RSS Feed. RSS feeds allow you to follow every new content that comes out in one place.

Information about new texts will most often appear in the form of a title, a short introduction to the text, and the website on which it was published. Sometimes the possibility of reading the whole text is offered right there. But if it is not offered, and you are interested in the new news, you can click on the website and read more.

RSS Feed is a platform that collects the latest posts from the pages you have assigned to it in one place and offers you an overview of the content in one place.

 

RSS (short for Rich Site Summary, RDF Site Summary, Really Simple Syndication - the Atom feed format and protocol) is a "family" of HTTP protocols/formats that allow data to be distributed over the Internet.

 

There are 4 HTTP protocols, which are intended primarily for the transmission of data over the Internet they are characterized as RSS Feeds.


  1. RSS 0.91 - Rich Site Summary (.xml extension)
  2. RSS 1.0 and RSS 0.99 - RDF Site Summary (.xml extension)
  3. Atom - Atom Syndication Format (.atom extension)
  4. RSS 2.0 - Really Simple Syndications (.xml extension)

 

RSS and Feed Reader Programs


Many different feed reader programs can be divided into two types:
 

  1. Web applications such as Google Feed Reader,
  2. Programs that are installed and run from a computer or mobile device.

 
Both types have their advantages. If you use web browsers, you can keep track of new items wherever you are. If you use an application on your computer, you can always have a program running quickly.
