Daily launches new district ‘chat’ page online

A regional daily has set up a new online forum for part of its patch on Facebook.

The South Wales Argus has announced the launch of the new Facebook page for the Blaenau Gwent area.

The Argus says it hopes the page will become a place “to discuss news, opinions and all things going on in the area”.

It will be run by Argus reporters but is designed to be a place “for resident discussion and chat”.

Argus digital reporter Rachel Nurse wrote in a piece announcing the page’s launch: “The page is a place to discuss news, opinions and all things going on in the area.

“At the Argus, we are looking to do more stories about the community to raise awareness around issues that are concerning people, as well as shine and light on the positives that are happening in the area.

“The group is run by Argus reporters, but it’s a place for resident discussion and chat.”
