An online magazine devoted to exploring the “virtual communities” of the internet has been launched in the UK.
The Community Herald, produced by information services provider CIX, featured contributions from BBC presenter Chris Long and The Guardian ‘s Jack Schofield in its 21 December issue.
CIX claims readers will have a “unique relationship” with Herald writers because, in the spirit of the “blogging” phenomenon, they can post immediate feedback and comments to articles.
Editor Andrew Smith said: “The purpose of the Community Herald is to provide a unique online destination where people can read, discuss and debate a wide range of issues relating to online communities.
“The journalists writing for the Community Herald are among the most knowledgeable and experienced observers of the online world. They have been given a free and wide-ranging brief to write about the subjects that they feel most strongly about”
