What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndicate) is an XML format designed for sharing web content. An RSS service (also known as an RSS channel) consists of a list of items, each of which contains a headline, a description of the article or discussion, and a link to the full article or discussion online.
How do I use RSS?
If you are interested in receiving the latest cancer news articles and information through an RSS feed, you will need to download an RSS news reader or aggregator. There are many different readers available, and several of them are free. Most readers are applications that you download online and install on your computer. Other RSS readers may be web-based services that you sign-up for.
Once active, RSS news readers typically allow you to view the articles in a friendly way, and will automatically update your list as new articles and discussions from CancerCompass become available.
