What is a feed?
A feed is a regularly updated summary of web content. When you subscribe to a website or weblog feed using a feed reader or a browser that supports feeds, you’ll receive a summary of news content from that site.
What is RSS?
RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” and is a feed format. Olentangy news feeds are RSS 2.0.
RSS readers (also known as news aggregators) gather the content from any number of sources that you select and consolidate and display it for you in one convenient location. This means you don’t have to visit each site individually to see what’s new – you can simply scan the headlines or summaries in your news reader and click to read the full text.
News readers come in two main types: web-based online aggregators and software that you run on your computer. Yahoo and Google both provide customizable news readers through their My Yahoo and Google Reader features. Another popular online aggregator is Bloglines. Aggregator software that runs on your own computer may be a standalone program or may be integrated into a program that you already use, such as Microsoft Outlook, the Mozilla Firefox browser or Apple’s Safari browser.
