News 12 and Newsday recently launched “hyper local” community Web sites using user-generate content. If the tests are successful, expect a site dedicated to your town soon.
Similar sites have been popping up across the country, even the world, some with an even greater focus on getting the Average Joe to write “news” stories on just about anything.
Is it working? Does anyone actually participate? Find out at this panel discussion.
