What is RSS?
RSS - which stands for Really Simple Syndication - is an easy way to get the latest likeitis™ news delivered right to your desktop.
RSS is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.
RSS is a way for web surfers to keep up with the latest news or catch hot deals on travel packages, concert tickets and nearly anything else people use the Internet for.
It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving summaries of the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually.
How does it work?
Based on a programming language already used to create many Web sites, RSS enables Internet developers to post short site summaries describing recently added or updated items and links.
Those postings are then scanned automatically by programs called RSS readers to deliver specialised news-wire-style "feeds" to interested readers.
These feeds are like personally tailored executive summaries containing dozens or even hundreds of headlines on a specific topic. So you get just the information you want, when you want, from the web.
How do I install it on my computer?
To subscribe and properly read the feed, you need an RSS reader. There are a stack of news readers available, many of which are free.
The two easiest ways are using newer versions of the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, which contain RSS readers.
Yahoo and Google also offer easy-to-use RSS options. Specialised RSS readers like Bloglines and Newsgator are slightly more sophisticated and take a little more experimentation, but are great once you get the hang of them.
All RSS feeds from likeitis™ are based on the RSS 2.0 specification.
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, have functionality which automatically picks up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites.
When loaded into an RSS reader, a feed will deliver a brief summary of each update that is made to the website it comes from, along with a link to the updated area of the website.
How do I subscribe to RSS feeds?
Once you have your RSS reader, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds reader checks.
Many sites display a small orange icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available
After you click on the button, you usually have to cut and paste the address of the feed into the reader software.
