Behind the Scenes
Prior to us being blocked on Facebook and Instagram, we used those platforms as a way for you and other potential readers to find our stories. Going forward, we have decided to shake things up when it comes to how we distribute our stories.
While you can still find links to our articles on Twitter and LinkedIn, we have decided to convert a few of our stories per day into videos. These videos will be in addition to our other video content such as Community Roundup and Moose Talks. We will be posting these video stories also on TikTok and YouTube so make sure to follow us there as well.
Don’t worry, we will still be writing articles that will be posted on our website so make sure to bookmark us on your favourite browser so you don’t miss out. You can also sign up for our daily newsletter or download our app for even easier access to local news.
