Many have asked how Front Porch Forum fits into the local news-scape. Most of the local news outlets here have run pieces explaining how we operate… much appreciated. But the one regional local daily newspaper has kept its distance so far.
Now today they’ve found a use for us… as a way to reach their dissatisfied customers. An FPF neighborhood forum in Essex Junction has been aflame with complaints about fouled up newspaper delivery recently. So a thoughtful resident offered the paper a chance to respond through his FPF account, which a responsible circulation manager took. Now most of their customers in the neighborhood will know the reason for the poor newspaper delivery service… message delivered by Front Porch Forum.
