Full Ocean County Hurricane Coverage on Facebook
Toms River–During Hurricane Sandy, Toms River Magazine has shifted our reporting efforts from our web page to our facebook page. This is to allow for ease of access to information by those whose only link to the outside world is their cell phone.
We have been using our Ocean County Police Blotter page to connect to up to 200,000 county residents during the outages and will continue our coverage there until Sunday night.
Please visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ocean-County-Police-Blotter/423813954320813 and like the page to be alerted on news as it happens.
During this storm, local media such as TR Magazine and Jersey Shore Hurricane News have been vital to the communities we live in and serve, not be reporting news stories, but by connecting the community through social media.
To us, the information is more important than the story and we have had many of our field reporters out and about in places the larger media just can’t access because they lack the local contacts and history.
We are Ocean County and will continue to serve Ocean County.
Again, visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ocean-County-Police-Blotter/423813954320813 on facebook to get local news from the ground as it happens.
