What is RSS?

Syndicated content, otherwise known as Really Simple Syndication (RSS), is a popular way to distribute information from websites. Using RSS, a news site or a blog can feed its new articles or entries to a group of subscribers automatically. Because RSS is still new, not all websites can publish in RSS. However, there are thousands of RSS sources, and you can find those sources all over the world.

 How do I use RSS?

You need an RSS reader, such as My MSN or others listed on the right, to use RSS feeds. RSS readers allow you to find feeds and subscribe to them, so that content is delivered to you. Using My MSN to subscribe to an RSS feed takes only a couple of clicks, and does not involve any fees. After you have subscribed to an RSS feed, headlines will become available in your reader. When you see a headline that interests you, just click it to view the full article.

RSS Readers

There are many different Really Simple Syndication (RSS) readers available—My MSN is only one of them. Some readers are designed with user interfaces that resemble e-mail inboxes instead of browsers. Whatever your preference, all RSS readers are used to collect, update, and display RSS feeds. While My MSN is one of the easiest RSS readers to use, here are a few that you may find useful:

If you use one of these other readers, you can also use My MSN for RSS. Just follow the procedure for subscribing to RSS feeds by using My MSN. You can also search for an RSS reader.

Find and subscribe to RSS

Subscribing to a Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed is similar to subscribing to a magazine. When you subscribe to a magazine, each new issue is mailed directly to you. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, every time a new entry or article is published to the Web, a link to the entry or article is added to your reader.
