Each site administrator can set the RSS feed as they wish, so some RSS feed you will receive may contain info such as titles, image, link to the full article, description, date, author, and etc. Frequently the RSS feed is updated showing the recent updates. RSS is a globally standardized format in the XML Language (Extensible Markup Language).
