Reddit is an online community site with more than a million sub communities known as subreddits each covering a different topic.
You can browse sub reddits by visiting the reddit homepage for the top most news or going to, for example, /r/boardgames which is a subreddit for people to discuss board games.
You can also register an account to take part in the discussions of a certain post, up vote or down vote, and also create your own posts.

RSS offers a way to stay informed on the latest content from sites you're interested in without having to visit each site and manually checking for new content.
Using an RSS Reader, like Feedly or InoReader for example, you can subscribe to multiple sites (hundreds of sites being normal) and the reader will inform you of the new content or articles posted on the sites you follow; while also marking the ones you have already visited as read.
While you can always subscribe to each site's newsletter, using RSS you're also ensuring your privacy by not providing your email address to each and every site you're interested in.
