Rss feed concept

Software-based aggregation

[edit] Functions

Aggregators reduce the time and effort needed to regularly check websites for updates, creating a unique information space or “personal newspaper”. Once subscribed to a feed, an aggregator is able to check for new content at user-determined intervals and retrieve the update. The content is sometimes described as being “pulled” to the subscriber, as opposed to “pushed” with email or IM. Unlike recipients of some “pushed” information, the aggregator user can easily unsubscribe from a feed.

Aggregator features are frequently built into portal sites, Web browsers, and email programs.

The aggregator provides a consolidated view of the content in a single browser display or desktop application. Such applications are also referred to as RSS readers, feed readers, feed aggregators, news readers, or search aggregators
