If you aren't sure what RSS is or how to make use of a feed, read our 'what is RSS?' information below.
What is RSS?
RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication' and it allows content to be more easily shared and distributed on the web.
What it means for site users is that RSS can allow you to subscribe to an area of a website which is regularly updated. By subscribing you will always automatically find out when that area is updated without needing to remember to check back yourself.
You can subscribe to multiple feeds and use a feed reader service or software so that you are always presented with a list of headlines from updated content from all of the feeds you subscribe to. You can then read the stories at your leisure and skip the ones you aren't interested in.
