Smalltown buys Local2Me

Posted on Monday, October 15, 2007 by No comments yet

Smalltown announced today that it just bought Local2Me.  Here are some of the reports about it…

As I’ve written in the past, I admire Smalltown’s narrow and deep focus on their initial five California towns.  Local2Me is in the same geographic area as Smalltown.  From Local2Me founder Michael Olivier…

The Local2Me service launched in 2000, and over the last seven years community members have posted over 31,000 neighborhood messages in 90 towns about wide-ranging topics, from great pediatric dentists to Halloween costumes for sale, trustworthy appliance repair, neighborhood crime issues, anti-raccoon measures, and more!

Each of these services has some similarities to Front Porch Forum.  Although it’s probably more apples to oranges than anything, FPF had about 15,000 messages in its first year operating in one small metro area (including 19 towns).
