Buzzwords

Hyperlocal = Focusing on a small area and making the most of the social web with focus directed towards the concerns of its residents.

Small is big. When it comes to making or reporting the news, the agenda can be distinctly different to that of a traditional news outlet because scale is not important, impact is.

Quotes
What’s so small to you is so large to me.
– Susana Vega, Rock in this pocket
