Local News Resource Center

A partnership with Facebook, Instagram and CrowdTangle

The Local News Resource Center offers social media solutions. We connect local media organizations with the training, information, tools and support network needed to meet business goals, such as drive website traffic, acquire new audience, and heighten engagement.

Through webinars, reports and case studies, one-on-one meetings, a newsletter and the Social Media Club, the Local News Resource Center supports members of the local news organizations in their efforts to harness the power of social platforms. The Local News Resource Center is funded by the Facebook Journalism Project.
