Tech update: RSS, Json, widgets..

Today I would like to update you on couple of typical Web 2.0 terminologies..Let have a brief look into these.

RSSRSS feeds

I believe many of you are already aware of this RSS, which stands for Really simple syndication. Basically RSS is kind of XML format that used to read the latest or updated information from the sources. Information could be any source like news website, blog , any website which updates the information.

How it is useful for us?

Lets take a scenario, you likes a couple of news website on a topic like sports or music of particular artist. So every time we dont need to visit the website for a particular column and check for any new articles are music published. Just subscribe to the RSS feed(there are tools that allows RSS feed, dont worry I will update you in my next post) at one place and refresh it. If any new information published on the same then news will be on your RSS tool in one single click..

The same rule applies for blogs too..many blogs enables the RSS feed on thier site..just subscribe them(I havent done yet but sure will enable it).

Now a days almost all news websites are supporting RSS feeds on their news so keep subscribing…

Ex: Rediff’s RSS feed:

RSS reader RSS Reader..

There are so many RSS readers are available in the web world(I don’t say Market) Google Reader and other third party reader also available. Basically they are categorized as browser based and desktop based. Google reader is browser based and RSS Bandit is desktop based application used to read RSS, developed in .net framework.

These days technology is evolving, new bread of web gizmo’s are getting ready into the web world called as widgets…Will update on the same in next post…

Stay connected..Good day.
