A large portion of the social media world went dark last week during the Facebook and Instagram outage, demonstrating the importance of local news sources such as The Press.
It’s no secret that many around the world rely on social media, including Facebook, for their news that’s curated from outside news sources. But as the world learned on Oct. 4, uninterrupted social media access is not guaranteed.
While we here at The Press would never compare ourselves to a worldwide social media behemoth, thepress.net, and its accompanying app, provided news during the outage.
Our goal here at The Press is to be East County’s preeminent credible news source, providing our readers with timely, accurate information directly from the community’s foremost sources and community leaders.
Placing our readers’ interests is foremost in everything we do. And with a website, app and weekly printed paper as distribution channels, we try to carry out our mission without interruption.
Thank you for reading; it’s a pleasure to serve you.
