RSS feeds are a great way to get news and updates. I use Google Reader, which I find very easy and clean with plenty of good features. I also check it on my smartphone from time to time. Whatever reader you choose to use, you will find it makes your online life so much easier–no more millions of tabs open with endless news and blog posts to read.
RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary
Here are some good references from Megan Taylor’s blog, SOJo: Student of Online Journalism, for those who are not familiar with RSS. The first post is from today, the others I found under “Most Popular Posts.”

Weigh in: Do you use RSS feeds? If so, what reader do you use?
