The Wilton Manors Gazette launched a Facebook group a year ago to keep readers up to date with the latest happenings and news in the city and to distinguish itself from its parent company, South Florida Gay News.
“What started out as a supplement to SFGN has really taken on a life of its own. Because of that we felt the Gazette needed a voice of its own, separate and apart from SFGN,” SFGN Publisher Norm Kent said. “We realize there is a community here in Wilton Manors that does not necessarily want all of SFGN’s news from around South Florida and the world, so the Gazette will focus on just hyper local news.”
By targeting just the Wilton Manors community SFGN’s staff will be able to highlight even more relevant news, stories and events geared towards locals. More importantly the Facebook group gives those who live in and care about Wilton Manors a voice in their community.
