About RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is an XML-based format that scans websites for updates to the content, and then delivers these to the users desktop as linked headlines, as soon as they are available.

How do I use RSS?

The first thing you need to use RSS is a program called a news reader. This software checks feeds and lets you read any new content to your computer. There are many different versions of these (many are free), some of which you will have to download and others which are accessible using a browser. Once you have a news reader, all you have to do is to choose the information you would like to receive. Where an RSS feed is available on the Freshwater Reviews website, click on the RSS (or ‘Atom’, depending on your software) link and add the URL of the feed to your news reader.
