YouTube starts showing community posts on the web home page

Friday, January 11th, 2019

YouTube's community features began showing up around a couple of years ago but it took a year for the feature to reach more channels and start popping up in users' home feeds on mobile. However, on the web, these posts were not as easily accessible: you had to go to each channel's page to see if it had any community updates. That won't be the case for long though, as posts are starting to show up on the home page for a few users.

Neighbourly is Google’s new community Q&A app for India

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Google's been focusing on India a lot lately. Following Areo, a food delivery and home services app, and Tez, a mobile payments app, the company has just introduced Neighbourly, a Q&A app through which you can ask and answer questions about places and events in your community. 

Neighbourly (spelled that way because India uses British English) is described as "a neighbourhood app that helps you ask your neighbours questions, share local expertise, and keep up with your neighbourhood." Using either text or voice input, for which English and eight Indian languages are supported, you can ask and answer questions.

Facebook vows to bump news stories from local sources higher up the news feed

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

There have been a few signs already this year that Facebook is maybe feeling the heat. Perhaps younger users are tending towards trendier, more dynamic forms of social media. Perhaps older users are tiring of such platforms altogether and going back to sending hand-written letters. Whatever the reason, Facebook understands that it needs to make some changes to keep its users coming back.

So far this year, the company has killed its unsuccessful virtual assistant, promised to clean up Messenger's act, and committed to making the Facebook news feed more personal.

Google Bulletin is a new hyperlocal community news crowdsourcing app

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Google has just unveiled a brand-new app designed for sharing inspiring stories between users who make up local communities. By giving every user the same platform, Bulletin hopes to unearth and highlight interesting news that would otherwise go unheard.

Users can tell their story by sharing photos, videos, or text, much in the same way as you would with a blog but with a ready-made audience. Presumably, there will be some form of moderation before your post goes live, but the idea is that news can be shared almost instantly to other members of your local community.
