What Is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for sharing and distributing Web content, such as news and arts headlines. Using an RSS reader, you can view data feeds from various news and information sources, including headlines, summaries, links to full stories. RSS feeds are different from podcasts; they do not contain audio.
How Do I Access RSS?
To view the headlines, add the feed to an RSS/News Aggregators (also called a reader), or to a browser (such as Safari for Mac OS X) that supports RSS feeds. An RSS reader will download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial RSS readers are available for download, including Amphetadesk for Windows, Mac, Linux; Feedreader for Windows; and NewsFire for Mac OS.
Many aggregators are separate, "stand-alone" programs; other services will let you add RSS feeds to a Web page. Yahoo! users can add RSS feeds to your My Yahoo! page without a reader; to make this easier, just click on the "Add to My Yahoo!" button to the right of each link above.
The Firefox browser supports Live Bookmarks, a system that detects RSS feeds and allows users to subscribe. Look for this icon in the bottom right corner of your browser, and click on it to subscribe. Feeds will appear in your Bookmarks list. michigan offers Live Bookmarks on all program and topic pages.
Another way many people use RSS feeds is by incorporating content into weblogs, or "blogs". Blogs are web pages comprised of usually short, frequently updated items and web links. Blogging as a publishing tool is used for many purposes: traditional journalism, personal journals, group discussions around a topic, and many combinations in-between.
