Hi friends I have collected this information from the Site stated below

What is RSS?

An RSS feed is a summary of the most recently updated content on a
website, with links to go directly to any content you're interested in
reading in greater
detail.

If you don't currently use RSS, you will probably be used to visiting
several different websites to check whether they have been updated
with new content
you're interested in. With RSS, you would let a program check those
websites automatically, see at a glance a summary of the latest
stories on each, and
read more on any of them with just one click.

There are several ways of receiving RSS feeds, and the technology is
moving forwards and adapting very quickly. The main method is to
download a program
called a 'reader' or 'aggregator'. You can then set up this program to
receive RSS information and browse headlines and story summaries
without opening
a full connection to the originating website.

Alternatively, some newer web browsers offer similar functionality
already built-in which will detect whether the website you are viewing
offers an RSS
feed and will then let you create a constantly-updated list of links
in your 'bookmarks' menu.

How to set up RSS

If you're new to RSS, you can set yourself up to start using RSS feeds
in two easy steps:

list of 3 items
1. Firstly, you need to download and install a piece of Feed Reader
software. There are many to choose from but all do the basic
essentials that you'll
need to get started. After that, like any software, it's just about
personal preference as to which one you prefer using. To begin with,
we'd recommend
choosing a free feed reader from the

2. Once your reader software is downloaded and installed on your
computer, you will be prompted to add feeds to it that you want to
check. Look for the
"Add Feed" option in the reader software and click on it. You will
then be asked for the "Location" or "URL" of the feed. Simply cut and
paste any RSS
address from our list below. You'll only need to add the feed to your
reader once; it will then remember the address and fetch new articles
whenever the
feed is updated.
3. The feed reader program will then check for the latest stories in
the feed and update your software accordingly, depending on your
settings, the software
should then automatically check for updates at regular intervals.
