RSS

RSS is a standard feed format for website updates. Applications or users can subscribe to an RSS feed to see new information once websites are updated, negating the need to check these sites manually. Most blogs and online journals provide an RSS feed. A news aggregator could utilize an RSS feed to aggregate updates from many sources. RSS feeds may share articles, headlines, audio snippets, podcasts, video news, or other content types. RSS feeds may also include metadata, commonly formatted in an XML file.
