I have a sneaky suspicion most of you have noticed a little orange logo in the address bar when you visit certain websites. Go ahead, look. Not sure where to look? Here you go:
Have you ever clicked on the logo? Go ahead, click. Whoa, eh? Takes all of the articles from a website and organizes them into a nice format.
RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication. The purpose of using RSS is so that users can aggregate their favourite article/post-based sites. There are many different pieces of software and login-based websites to combine all of the “feeds”. I have not tried many of these and ever since trying Google Reader I doubt I will ever consider any others.
There really is not much to using RSS. If you are looking for a reader, I highly recommend Google Reader as you can access your feeds wherever you go.
The purpose of this article was to introduce the basic goal of RSS. I hope that those of you who have never tried this will test it out. As always, if you have any questions please email me at !
