What is RSS?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It is a standard format used to share content on the Internet. Many websites provide RSS "feeds" that describe their latest news and updates.
How can I use RSS?
You can use RSS to review updates from your favorite websites without having to visit each site. Using an RSS reader, you subscribe to the feed from a website, then scan headlines to find articles of interest. If you find an article you like, click the headline to read the complete article. You always have the latest headlines because your RSS reader periodically retrieves the RSS feeds. You can also use Director of National Intelligence news feeds directly on your website. (See "Can I use Director of National Intelligence News Feeds on my Web site?" below.
Where can I get an RSS reader?
You can use an online RSS reader, which works from any web browser, or you can download software that runs on your computer. Some RSS readers are free, and some are available for a fee.
