RSS Feed

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a feed format used to display frequently updated content on the Web. RSS feeds are generated by news websites and can be read by RSS reader software as well as by other websites.

Websites that offer RSS feeds will typically display rss image 1 or rss image 1 images to represent the fact that they offer the service. Typically if you click on the icon you will be taken to a page that displays the website's latest content as an XML file. Click here to view a sample RSS feed for the BBC News Homepage.
