Patch......A New News Source

If you look up the definition of the word “patch” you discover a patch is something that covers or mends a small area. Synonyms for the word patch include cover or reinforcement.

The definition and synonyms can also apply to the Patch website found here.

Patch is the new online new source that covers a specific area and serves as a reinforcement regarding the news you need to know.

The Patch website is a link to various Patch sites quickly covering towns and cities all across the United States as evidenced by the map found at the Patch webpage.

Click on the state of Georgia and you can quickly see Patch is on the move across the Atlanta metro area and beyond covering cities and town such as Buckhead, Kennesaw, Holly Springs-Hickory Flat, and even my town of Douglasville.
The Patch page advises, “Simply put, Patch is a new way to find out about, and participate in, what’s going on near you.”

The information is community-specific,  and the platform provided is news and information including events, photos, videos, and information about local businesses and schools. You can participate in discussions and even submit your own announcements, photos, and reviews. The site for your town is completely interactive.

Recently CBS News presented a short video package regarding Patch.  You can see it here.
