What is RSS feed?

A RSS feed is a format that allows social media platforms and websites to provide users with updates in a computer-compatible format. An RSS feed encompasses the simplified text files that are formatted in computer-readable XML format. RSS feeds can be subscribed to and these subscriptions give users summarized bits of information germane to the topics that most interest them. News content, blogs posts, weather information, etc. can all be accessed in a filtered way without having to search for information or navigate multiple websites. Best of all, information on an RSS feed is updated in real-time.
