What is RSS?

i would like to know what is RSS?

what is the difference between holding RSS and without RSS?

we can also read online newspaper online even without RSS, isn't it? then what is RSS for?

What is RSS?
It means Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary. It's a way of automatically keeping you updated on RSS sites that you subscribe to rather than you checking them manually. So, with your online newspaper example, new content would be updated automatically when you subscribe to that newspaper (subscribe for free that is), then you can read any updates via an RSS reader like Google Reader rather than visiting the website yourself and finding updates manually.
Reply:Try searching for an "RSS Directory" in the search engine.

YouTube has videos explaining RSS.

You can display and provide links for your Y!A questions, your starred questions, and the news that interests you on your Y!360 and MySpace pages with an RSS feed.

The feed for my questions in MySpace updates faster than the one in my Y!360.

This website is for displaying RSS feeds in MySpace.

It provides links to the RSS source.

This website is for displaying RSS feeds in MySpace, Blogger, html, email, Google, Friendster, Hi5, and Xanga.

It displays images but does not provide links to the RSS source.

For Y!360:

Find your list of questions.

To the right of your most recent question you will see the RSS link.

Click on it with the right button then left click on copy shortcut (URL).

Or you can double click the RSS link and then copy the URL from your address bar.

In your Y!360 click "My Page."

Click "Add a Feed (via RSS)" or click "Edit Feeds."

Right click on one of the three boxes then left click on paste (the short cut - URL).

Then save.

You can also display information from:

Yahoo! News (for specific subjects like your state, country, or corporation)

MSN News

BBC News

Craigslist, Digg, Netflix, YouTube, and many periodicals,

and blogs from MySpace, Y!360 and other blog websites.

The RSS link for Y!360 blogs is in the orange box at the bottom of the blog page.
