Why use RSS?
The advantage of using RSS to read blogs and news that you have subscribed to, is that you can skim lots of sources quickly.
How does it work?
To use an RSS feed, you need two things:
1. You need a reader for RSS feeds. There are many different readers available including specialized software you install on your computer and several web-based readers such as Bloglines.com and Google Reader, as well as browser-based tools such as Firefox’s “Live Bookmarks” feature.
2. Once you have a feed reader, you need to subscribe to the feeds you want to read. This is often as simple as copying the feed address and pasting it into the “subscribe” or “add” option in your feed reader.
When you start up your feed reader, you will see lists of new items in those feeds that have been added since you last checked.
