Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

The Matamata Chron­i­cle is linked into the best on­line plat­form to con­nect you with your com­mu­nity- Neigh­bourly.co.nz. This on­line com­mu­nity news board and fo­rum is the way of the fu­ture and what sets it apart from any other so­cial net­work­ing plat­form is that it all about your neigh­bour­hood. This ge­o­graphic con­nec­tion is some­thing that has been sorely lack­ing with on­line net­work­ing and Neigh­bourly does a fan­tas­tic job at bring­ing peo­ple to­gether who live nearby to each other. When sign­ing up to Neigh­bourly it does ask for some per­sonal in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing your ad­dress and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion de­tails. This is im­por­tant be­cause it needs to know you are who you say you are and that the ad­dress is real so you can trust that you’re con­nect­ing with peo­ple who ac­tu­ally live in and around your sub­urb. Neigh­bourly.co.nz is grow­ing at an ex­tra­or­di­nary rate with over 420,000 mem­bers around New Zealand. The more peo­ple who join the more rel­e­vant it will be­come to Matamata.
