This leaves smaller communities and suburbs without their traditional main source of news.It is called "hyperlocal" news, with some examples including sites like EveryBlock, Spot.us, Outside.in, Placeblogger and Patch. Unlike traditional news media entities, hyperlocal news sites don't rely exclusively on professional journalists. Instead, many of the sites use a mix of freelance and in-house content to fill up the web pages.
Hyperlocal sites also vary widely in look and function - some are closer to a traditional news organization with a full-blown news staff that produces stories and interviews. Other sites create something closer to a community calendar that highlights local happenings and activities. Instead of hard news coverage, the site may contain a lot of human interest features and profiles of various community members.

Why Local News Are Winning
Launching a hyperlocal news site is one thing - writing compelling content that keeps your readers coming back is quite another. Many journalists write their content in what is called an inverted pyramid. The reason for this is that editors typically cut from the bottom if a story is too long. The next tip may sound a bit obvious, but it is critically important: be accurate. If quoting someone makes sure the quotes are correct and attributed to the right individual. Fortunately with the large volume of information available on the web, fact-checking is much easier than it used to be. Finally, the pet peeve of any news connoisseur is clichés. The key is to use many of the social networking tools available to do some self-promotion. Send out links to your content via Facebook and Twitter, and interact with visitors on your site.
News aggregation technology has resolved the problem in news monitoring. A news aggregator is a tool or system that collects news contents from different new sources. Today, there are several news aggregation sites that people can use to get the latest news. Software-based aggregators are installed in web browsers and email applications to deliver news updates right at these applications, which can be viewed in a panel composition. Some news aggregation sites have unorganized news contents. News sources are misleading.
* News aggregation sites do not contain local news (although others do) or community news stories seldom get included in the list.
* In the case of RSS feeds, other web sites do not support RSS.
* Not all software-based aggregators are free.
* Not all software-based aggregators support any operating system.
