RSS

RSS is completely free, which makes it all the more attractive to use. All you need is an internet connection and a program called an aggregator. Also known as a feed reader, the aggregator runs as a background application and checks for new content in what is called a feed. The feed is essentially a specially formatted file that typically contains brief snippets of content posted on the site that hosts it (although some will offer content in its entirety over these feeds). When the aggregator sees a new piece of content in that RSS feed, it will alert you to the change.

These aggregators can be either web or desktop-based . There are also a number of programs and add-ons that provide RSS functionality to email clients and browsers. Once you’ve installed a feed reader, you can get started.
