RSS provides a way to share dynamic content collections such as news or announcements with other sites and visitors.

Browsers handle RSS feeds differently and those without a built-in RSS reader will display your feed as raw XML code or even throw up an error (e.g. Firefox and IE have RSS readers, but Chrome does not).
An RSS feed can be built of your UBCMS content that can then be shared with visitors or embedded onto another website. Currently this requires additional steps in the 'backend' (in CRX/DE).
To pull an external RSS feed into your UBCMS page, you will need to create a Shared Content page, and then place that page onto your website using a Shared Content Reference.
Be careful to use the right folder name. /content/shared/..../feeds is required for this to work automatically.

Use a Shared Content Reference to pull the feed through your new Shared Content page onto your UBCMS Web page.

Please Note: This solution does not allow any control over the feed, such as the number of entries displayed.
Use a List Builder Component to gain more control , including the number of items revealed from the feed.
Using a List Builder, you can control how many items from the feed you wish to display.

An example -- below are the first entries from the Music Library's news feed (http://libweb.lib.buffalo.edu/blog/music/?feed=rss2) displayed using a List Builder component.
