What Is RSS? Or What Does That Orange Radar Thingy Do?

Do you know what the orange radar is for?

This is an RSS feed button. And, surprisingly, many people have yet to discover what RSS is.

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, or “News Feed” every day.

This means that you don’t have to bookmark your favorite sites or visit them regularly to see if there is any new information. All of this is very time consuming, not to mention confusing, especially when trying to keep track of multiple sites. We all know how annoying it is to return to a website and find that we missed it due to insufficient checks, or worse, we keep reading the same page because there is no new information because the website is not updated regularly.

RSS eliminates all these needs, as the name suggests, “really simple federation” is very easy to use.

First you need to connect to the RSS feeder. Many are tied to your email account provider, so you’re already in the middle. Enter “your email provider” and “reader” in the search engine, log in to your account and connect the reader to your account.

The next time you visit your favorite site, click the orange radar RSS feed button and start subscribing to get the latest updates. Normally, you will be taken to a one-click page confirming that you want to subscribe and that the work is complete.

Sometimes you will be directed to a page with a code. do not panic! Copy the URL of the website of your choice, go to your reader’s homepage, click the “Add Subscription” button, paste the URL into the box and confirm.

Now the latest information will be sent to your reader, which will be used as a dedicated inbox for all content sent from the website of your choice so that you can read it however you want.

When you visit readers, all newly updated titles will be displayed on the right side of the page. If you want to know more, click on the title.

Now you collect all this information in one place, and the website does all the work for you.

You don’t have to spend a lot of time on the internet procrastinating to get new information, you don’t have to fill out forms, and you don’t have to provide your email address, which in turn means the inbox will be neater.

I bet you are glad you discovered the RSS feed button (formerly called “Orange Radar”) feature!
