What is an RSS Feed?
Instead of having to go to a website to check to see if there is new content, RSS (Really Simple Syndication) collects and compiles the information for you in your feed reader. When new content is posted on a site that you subscribe to, it automatically appears in your feed reader. Typically, feeds relate to a particular kind of content and not the entire website. For example, ACDI/VOCA’s feed is for news items. Some websites may offer multiple feeds for different kinds of content.
