One of the greatest programming advances in technology today is without a doubt the RSS News Feed. Internet users of all types and languages occasionally come across the RSS name and pop-ups without giving a second thought to what it is. Essentially, this is because while many of us don’t know exactly what it’s doing there, we do know that it’ a trusted source. But a trusted source of what?
RSS News Feeds exist to keep us constantly updated. Created in 1999 along with the first real internet browser, Netscape, RSS News Feeds serve as the backbone of most of the most popular sites on the internet. RSS News Feeds are automatically generated by virtually all blogs, so if you are a current subscriber to a friend’s blog then you are already using RSS.
However, RSS News Feeds are simply too powerful to let remain behind the scenes. The technology supplied at no real extra cost to you can be utilized as immense time-savers, and it is something you can use to your own advantage. For example, pod-cast is a term which makes some internet users nervous, as if there is something too complicated to overcome in order to participate. In reality, RSS News Feeds make these applications practical and allow us to hear many of our favorite radio personalities or keep updated on the news by the minute. RSS News Feeds do all the work and can be used to create podcasts of meetings for later use, thereby creating an invaluable teleconferencing resource.
RSS News Feeds also give you the capability to get instant updates on your friend’s blogs. Just install chicklets, which are buttons allowing you to automatically subscribe to a blog, and receive automatic updates with none of your own effort. RSS News Feeds simply do all the work for you, whether you know it or not.
