What is RSS?


RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") is used to distribute news, or news-like content to subscribers who use RSS readers to display the content.

An RSS reader aggregates content so that you can view headlines from multiple RSS feeds.

How to access RSS Feeds


There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds.

You can install a news reader that displays RSS feeds from multiple Web sites that you select. Add a feed by clicking on the orange "RSS" button.

You can also use a Web-based news reader. For example, iGoogle or My Yahoo! users can add RSS feeds directly to their personal pages by clicking on the appropriate "+" button.
