RSS news feeds and XML technology are here to save us from the
torrents of SPAM that flood our mailboxes daily. RSS stands for
"real simple syndication" and it simply means a simple
way to send you information you're interested in.
XML is the actual technology that distributes RSS and the terms
are sometimes used interchangably. You don't really have to concern
yourself about the technical parts.
does this work for you? By putting control of delivery of information
into the hands of you, the consumer rather than the publisher. This
forces the publisher to deliver only high quality material that
the consumer desires.
they don't, the consumer can dump the RSS news feeds that deliver
worthless or low quality information. Unlike unsubscribing from
email, once the news feed is terminated, that's it. Nothing more
will show up from that site.
email address won't be passed around to thousands of other spammy
marketers because you never had to give up your personal information
to receive the news feed in the first place.
