The Tech > Media > Journalism > Hyperlocal news and citizen media - (18)

Hyperlocal news and citizen media platforms represent an early dream that the internet's limitless capacity as a medium would lead to the emergence of extremely local (and thereby relevant) news coverage. This dream hasn't played out as expected. While we all report, in a sense, about our hyperlocal experiences on social media platforms, the venerated "citizen journalist" of the early 2000s wasn't able to sustainably produce quality journalism to the degree many industry experts predicted.
