Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a web format that automatically distributes frequently updated content to subscribers, eliminating the need for subscribers to check the website manually to stay up to date. 

RSS feeds use the XML format, allowing various applications, including web browsers, email clients, and specialized RSS readers, to read and display the feed's information in a list or grid format. You can set up an RSS feed to enable users to scan headlines and summaries quickly and click through to access the complete content on the publisher's website.

For example, a news website may provide an RSS feed that delivers the latest headlines and summaries. A podcast producer may also use RSS to syndicate their latest episodes to listeners. Subscribing to an RSS feed offers users a hassle-free way to stay up to date with their favorite content.
