What are RSS feeds?
Updates to a website are broadcast to subscribers through an RSS feed. A message will appear in your reader or aggregators every time the website section you are subscribed to is updated. You can read RSS feeds on digital devices and cellphones.

- RSS feeds are a good alternative to subscribing to updates via email. You do not have to provide personal information (such as an email address) to subscribe to an RSS feed, and you do not run the risk of missing important updates because an email gets deleted or caught in your spam filter.
