RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) is a simple way to view updates of the top stories from as they unfold.

RSS is an easy way for you to check when content that interests you has been published on and your other favourite websites, keeping you up-to-date without you having to always go back to the sites.

RSS feeds are read in a program called a news reader or aggregator. Both "free" and "paid for" news readers are widely available for download on the Web. Once you have downloaded and installed your news reader, follow its instructions for adding new feeds or channels. Setting up a RSS feed differs across each news reader or aggregator. However it normally entails copying the URLs of the feed required into your RSS software.
