What is a Web Feed?

I have heard the phrase web feed but I'm not really clear on what it is. Can you explain what a web feed is?

When people use the term web feed it is typically used  synonymously with an RSS feed, but not always. The phrase web feeds can also refer to data feeds or XML feeds. Both data feeds and XML feeds might use a different format (tag structure) than RSS. If a website is asking you to submit your web feed it is safe to assume they will accept RSS. If a website is providing you a web feed to display content on your website it may or may not be in the RSS format.
