Getting Started With RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and enables CBS News and other content distributors to publish news feeds (stories, videos, and photos) on the Web that change throughout the day. RSS feeds enable people to keep up-to-date on the news from CBS and other publishers that interest them the most - as it happens.

How does it work?

RSS is possible through a software language made for the Internet called "XML" - which stands for eXtensible Markup Language. XML is the engine. The RSS feed is the content. Your Internet browser or RSS Reader (sometimes called an aggregator) is the window into this content.
