– Taking Community Life Online

Patch.comIf you are of these individuals that claim the Internet does nothing but drive people and communities apart, then visiting this website will be a mind-broadening experience. Entitled Patch, we can define it as an online aggregator of the actual activity of any community.

By giving the site a look you can be in the loop when it comes to news and events concerning the community that you live in. You can also connect with local businesses, and the site is fully compliant with media of every type. This will be specially useful when you are submitting an ad, be it about a used item that you want to sell or about an event that you are trying to promote.

Moreover, you can engage in conversation with other neighbors online and discuss the ways in which your community could be benefited. You can also get down to some good old-fashioned gossiping, of course.

This platform has recently launched, and only a couple of locations throughout the US are active. I wonder how the site will expand, and what degree of mass acceptance it can eventually have. In Their Own Words

“Simply put, Patch is a new way to find out about, and participate in, what’s going on near you.

We’re a community-specific news and information platform dedicated to providing comprehensive and trusted local coverage for individual towns and communities.”
