How to subscribe and to read them. RSS FEEDS 

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a web feed format used to publish frequently updated information, such as blog posts, news articles, and other online content. It allows users to stay informed about updates from their favorite websites without having to visit each site individually. Here's a breakdown of how RSS feeds work and how to subscribe to and read them:

How RSS Feeds Work

Feed Creation: The website or blog generates an RSS feed, usually in XML format, that includes summaries or full content of recent updates.

Feed URL: This RSS feed is accessible via a specific URL, often ending in .xml or .rss.

Feed Reader: Users use an RSS feed reader (also known as an aggregator) to subscribe to these feeds. The feed reader periodically checks the feed URL for new content and displays it to the user.

How to Subscribe to an RSS Feed

Find the RSS Feed URL: Look for an RSS icon (usually an orange square with white radio waves) or a link labeled "RSS" or "Feed" on the website. This link is the feed URL.

Copy the Feed URL: Right-click on the RSS link and select "Copy Link Address" or "Copy Link Location."

Open Your Feed Reader: There are many RSS feed readers available, including: Web-based Readers: Feedly, Inoreader, The Old Reader.

Desktop Readers: RSSOwl, FeedReader, Reeder (for Mac).

Mobile Apps: Feedly, NewsBlur, Reeder (for iOS), Aggregator (for Android).

Add the Feed URL to Your Reader: In your chosen feed reader, look for an option to add a new feed. Paste the copied URL into this field.

Subscribe: Confirm the subscription. The feed reader will start fetching updates from the feed.

How to Read RSS Feeds

Open Your Feed Reader: Launch the RSS feed reader where you've subscribed to the feeds.

View Feed Updates: The reader will display a list of the latest updates from all the feeds you’ve subscribed to. Each update usually includes a headline, a summary, and a link to the full article.

Read Content: Click on the headline or summary to read the full content. This may open the full article within the reader itself or in a new browser tab, depending on the reader’s settings and the feed's configuration.
