Why are RSS feeds important?
An RSS feed is a manner of synchronizing data between different systems. Through a rather simple connection and without far-reaching system integration, data can be published and requested by means of RSS feeds.
RSS feeds are utilized by end users as a kind of data pulling. This means that the user doesn't have to go to a news website every day to read the latest news, but receives automated and up-to-date summaries of news articles in his or her RSS reader through RSS. And if the summary of the article is interesting enough, the reader clicks through to the website of the RSS provider.
