Why? That's a fair question. We'll help to keep you informed about your community, and we don't flood your feed with too many posts. But it also helps keep us informed—here's a recent example:
On Friday afternoon, Aug. 24, a reader posed this question on our Facebook page:
Any idea as to why there were 3 cop cars (including the K9 unit) and a photographer (seemingly crime scene?) in front of the 2 recently built homes on Duffryn Ave around 2:30 today?
The answer—A woman had returned to her home to find a burglar, and police were chasing him. Malvern Patch spoke with police, posted a brief story on this site and answered the reader's question on Facebook, within about an hour of the reader posting her question.
We issued a breaking news alert (subscribe!), then went to the scene and spoke with the victims and neighbors. Later that night, we were the first to run a .
That Facebook tip was valuable to us, and we were able to provide the information the reader was seeking.
There are other examples of how the Malvern Patch Facebook page acts as a community switchboard—like the Malvern Fire Chief responding to a reader asked how to rent the fire hall, or the on her street.
