RSS allows you to manage, create, and share web based content pertinent to your area of interest. RSS content can be text, audio (podcasts), video.
RSS feeds are available for content created by individuals to content compiled by the big guys -- Google.
As with all sources of web content -- "Let the buyer beware!" Anyone can create and RSS feed and "anyone" does. If you plan to incorporate RSS feeds into a website which is accessed by students, ensure that the content is valid and appropriate!
When you "subscribe" to an RSS feed, information in the feed is "pushed" to you whenever
the feed content is updated.
A tool called an aggregator collects and displays your feed.
There are aggregators that are web-based and those that are downloaded to your personal computer.
Find our what's new online -- weblogs,, news sites, breaking news etc. For example, if a feed is submitted
to Technorati, an alert of a new content item hits that
feed, it’ll start appearing in Technorati search results. I can take days, weeks,
or months for Google to index that content.

Solosub ~ Use one button (or text link): and point it to your solosub page. Your solosub page is: http://solosub.com/sub/http://YOUR_RSS_FEED_URL. On that page your readers can pick which RSS reader they use, I will keep it updated with the most popular options. Your readers gets a quick definition of what a FEED is, I call them content feeds, not RSS feeds or ATOM, because those terms are hard to market. (feel free to suggest a better definition than mine)
