What is RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to keep updated automatically on websites you like. Instead of you having to go to websites to see if they've written a new article or feature, you can use RSS (slang defined as 'Really Simple Syndication') to get them to tell you every time they have something new.

In general you need to get hold of a program called a News Reader. This displays RSS information feeds from your chosen websites on your computer.
All you then have to do is choose which RSS feeds you want for from different websites.
