RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes content to a wide number of people in brief.
How it works?
RSS works by having the website author maintain a list of notifications on their website in a standard way. This list of notifications is called an "RSS Feed". People who are interested in finding out the latest headlines or changes can check this list. Special computer programs called "RSS aggregators" have been developed that automatically access the RSS feeds of websites you care about on your behalf and organize the results for you. (RSS feeds and aggregators are also sometimes called "RSS Channels" and "RSS Readers".)
Other uses of RSS:
RSS can be used for many other purposes like:
* RSS notify the arrival of new products.
* Listing and notifying you of newsletter issues, including email newsletters
* Weather and other alerts of changing conditions
* Notification of additions of new items to a database, or new members to a group
