Week 8: RSS and Newsreaders

This week I learned about RSS; RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. An RSS feed is a document that contains either a summary of content from a web site or the full text of a website. RSS feeds makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites automatically rather than checking them manually.

I think that there are many things about RSS in my mind. I have a list of websites that I view on a regular basis, but it is no where near "simple" for me to keep track of those sites. On my personal blog, I have a feed of blogs which I read, and I must admit that it saves me so much time. I do not have to spend time checking each blog, but can rather sign in to mine and then see my friends' updates.
