Getting MyVeronaNJ News If Facebook Doesn’t Deliver

By on January 16, 2018

Most of the readers of get their news directly from our site. We know from our Google Analytics reports that they come to the site every day, sometimes several times a day, to see what’s happening. But some of our readers wait for our stories to appear on Facebook. The social media giant is now poised to change how news appears in Facebook users’ feeds, and that could mean that our 3,703 Facebook fans could see fewer stories from or other news organizations.

So we’re doing four things to make sure you don’t miss a single story.

First, we’re encouraging readers to sign up for our free newsletters. We send a daily evening recap of all the stories we have published and we’re reviving our weekly summary, sent on Sunday, of the most important pieces. When you get the teal-colored pop-up on encouraging you to sign up for the newsletters, please do so. We never share or sell the email addresses we collect.

Second, if you prefer push notifications, we’ve now implemented a push service. Again, it’s free. When you visit now you will get a pop-up with our logo asking if you want to get an alert when new stories are published. If you see a red circle with a bell in it, you can click on that to subscribe too.

Third, we’re stepping up our use of our other social media sites, on Twitter and Instagram.

And finally, perhaps the most important step is that we are part of a cooperative dialogue between independent news sites and Facebook to create the best way for it to present authentic, local news. was one of the founding members of Local Independent Online News Publishers (LION) and its strong–and growing–membership means that we can speak to Facebook on equal footing with news organizations that are many times our size.
