RSS is a web feed format that publishes content such as blogs entries and news headlines and it is frequently updated. With RSS feeds, you can receive updates from your favourite websites automatically without having to visit each site manually. You can read the RSS content using a software called an “RSS reader”. Scan the headlines published and click on the link that you are interested in to read more.
