What exactly is an RSS feed?

It can be tough to keep up with what’s happening online, especially with so much new content on the web added daily. People try several different ways, including visiting specific websites every day, doing Google searches, or relying on social media to keep them informed. 

One option that gets overlooked is an old-school one: The RSS feed.

What is an RSS feed? It’s a technology that’s influenced many current internet tools, and its streamlined, algorithm-free format could be useful to you.

RSS refers to simple text files with necessary, updated information — news pieces, articles etc. The stripped-down content is plugged into a feed reader. This is an interface that quickly converts the RSS text files into a stream of the latest updates from around the world wide web.

There are many different kinds. However, some of the most popular include:

Feedreader

A simple, minimalistic reader that makes curation easy with basic categories and accessible tools. It has a preview option to see what an RSS feed looks like before you sign up, and it gives alternative options if the feed isn’t for you.

Feedly

Feedly is currently one of the most popular feed readers online. Feedly can be used for entertainment and professional purposes eg. keeping up on industry news). It has a simple interface with basic categories and a home page filled with the latest news from everywhere.

Flipboard

Flipboard is praised for its design that looks particularly good on mobile devices. It’s an good choice if you want a more organic, e-zine way to see new from your favourite sources.

RSS a thing of the past?

RSS feeds are still present, but not as much as they once were. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others have become the preference. Google doesn’t tend to support them any more. Interest in RSS feeds has gone down over the past several years.
