1) Real-time Updates About News
Remember when we learned about Tony's Donuts expanding to Hazelwood? That was first reported on our Facebook page. We regularly update the page with news and notes from the community that don't always make it to the Patch website. Stay in the know!
2) You Help Create the Conversation
Big stories generate important conversations in our communities. When a Hazelwood West Middle School Student went missing we spread the news on our Facebook page. More than 100 people shared and reccomended the article probing news outlets in California where the child was suspected of being taken to also report on the news. Eventually the child was found and brought back home safely.
3) Keep Your Neighbors Informed
When folks have questions about new businesses (like the new Jimmy John's opening or the what's moving into the old Blockbuster building at Village Square), road closings and more, they turn to each other on our Facebook page to get answers. Let's help keep each other informed.
4) Stay Connected With Neighbors and Readers
At Patch, it's not always about breaking news. Sometimes we just like a great conversation — like when I asked about schools decided between teaching children cursive handwriting and how to type on the computer. That sparked a day long conversation.
5) Extended Photo Galleries
We take every opportunity to post extended photo galleries on our Facebook page, like when we are out at events like the Hazelwood Harvestfest, The Working Women's Conference or at a chamber networking event.
