Really Simple Explanation of Really Simple Syndication

There are two types of Internet users, those that use RSS and those that don’t. This video is for the people who could save time using RSS, but don’t know where to start.

For the longest while, I had trouble wrapping my head around just exactly what RSS was.

In other words, it sounded really good, but no one told me how to use it. The best that I could come up with was that if I clicked on the link to a blog’s feed, I got to view an summary of the posts without any CSS formating or ad content.
