Understanding community or hyperlocal journalism

There is little data about ‘hyperlocal’ or community news websites in this country. A survey from University of Westminster, Cardiff University and Birmingham City University into hyperlocal sites and platforms, supported by Talk about Local, aims to understand their nature and the problems or issues that those who run them are facing. (A platform can include social media outlets.)

See Talk About Local for background or direct to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/J8XDSRF.

Also for those involved, check out the open online course (MOOC) on FutureLearn starting in April, produced by Cardiff University, https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/community-journalism .
