      Rss feed known as "Really Simple Syndication" its a family of web feed( provides users who subscribe for it with frequently updated content), i.e. f you have a blog and I subscribe on your feed, by simply clicking on it it will appear on top of my browser and anytime you publish new stuff I will be informed automatically, as they are published.
      You can do the same for news, if you subscribe for BBC news you can get all the headlines in real time.

      Hope this will help

    RSS is something a fan of yours (or any reader) would sign up for, and after doing so they then get a notification any time you update or change a page.  It is useful if you write a lot of guides or news stories where additional information could be added as it becomes familiar.

    I have not used it yet myself, but as I understand it you would have to add and update these documents through an RSS client.  I am sure there are quality guides that could help you with this, possibly even some here on hubpages.
