What is a News Feed, was a question I asked myself for quit sometime. Then I finally got tired of not, and started looking for the answer. Here’s what I came up with.
A News Feed also-known-as Web Feed, is a data format for frequently updated content websites, which contains article headlines, and article summaries, which link back to full-text articles on the web.
New Feeds are an easy way for you to be alerted when contect that interest you appears on your favorite web site, in place of visiting each, and browsering through for new articles and features you like. And this is done via automated updates when something new is posted on the web site.
Most content is delivered by a web feed is typically HTML or links to web pages and other kinds of digitial media. Most often, updates include summaries in the web feed, rather than the full content itself. Encouraging the user to come to their site, and the remaining of the article.
