What is RSS?

RSS is an acronym for Really Simple Syndication, a quick and easy way to stay up to date with online content. Brighter Life provides RSS feeds so that you can subscribe to stories and multimedia – whether you want to subscribe to the entire site, or just your favourite section, like Money or Family. By subscribing to an RSS feed, you will be notified each time the site has been updated.
