There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people its stands for ‘Really Simple Syndication’. In essence, the news feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people.

RSS feeds allow you to see when websites have added fresh content, via your choice of RSS feed reader.

You can get the latest headlines and video in one place, as soon as it has been published, without having to continuously visit the websites you have taken the feed from.
