What is RSS?
An RSS feed (also known as a news feed) is a site's syndicated news feed that you subscribe to using your news reader.
What is a news feed?
A news feed, also known as an RSS feed, is a method of listing of a website's content and information. It is updated whenever new content is published to the site by a member of the Gladiators. News reader applications or services (most of which are free) "opt-in" to news feeds, which means they download lists of stories at an interval that you specify (every 30 minutes, for example), and present them to you in your news reader. A news feed might contain a list of story headlines, a list of excerpts from the stories, or a list containing each story from the website (GwinnettGladiators.com's news feeds will contain story excerpts). All news feeds will link back to the website and the applicable story, so if you see a headline / excerpt / story you like, you can click on the link and you will be taken to the website to read it in its entirety.
What is a news reader?
A news reader (also known as a news aggregator) is simply a piece of software that you can use to read your subscribed news feeds. It is to news feeds what Outlook, Hotmail, and Entourage are to email. Keep reading for a list of News Readers.

You won't have to visit many sites multiple times every day to see if there are updates; your news reader will do that for you and will let you know when there is a new story to be read!
So if you visit a lot of websites regularly, or want to be alerted automatically when your websites publishes a new story, using a news reader will make life easier.
Some commonly used news readers are Feed Demon, Sharp Reader, and NewsGator (an Outlook plugin) for Windows, NetNewsWire and Shrook for Macs, and Bloglines.com for those who like web-based readers.
