RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, which is standardized content distribution method that can
help you stay up-to-date with your favorite content online. Once you follow a feed, instead of
having to visit a site daily and see if there are new posts, an RSS reader will notify you when new
content has been published.
What is an RSS reader?
An RSS reader will notify you if new content is available on the feeds you follow. From here you can
use your RSS reader to view the content provided, or to go to the website to find out more. As you
read each piece of new content the RSS reader marks that content as read.
There are many RSS readers available, but some of the more popular ones include Feedly, Inoreader, and Newsblur. For more
info on these readers, you can find more details in this Wired article. Happy reading!
