So it was announced to some 15.000 facebook fans of the local. Probably very few of which live in Switzerland. Anyway: Looks like facebook is by now more important than EF. Discuss.
Yeah but that's only fair, after all the Facebook fans have their comments live on The Local all day... er, hang on, no, wait a moment...

I was more depressed that in their Twitter link on "what's going on in Switzerland" there was a horde of morons retweeting some crap about Justin Bieber being given a penknife....

Re: Tada! www.thelocal.ch

It goes to show how you can make money without actually doing anything creative. The news is links to news sites, the jobs section is a link to experteer a jobs site, the forum section is a link to here and the property section is a link to property sites.

It's just a shell that brings people in, makes money from advertising while not actually having to create a single item itself.

Internet technology at work.

Re: Tada! www.thelocal.ch

I see the links to experteer, but the news appears to be their own content, although the articles are rather slim pickings. It looks like a poor version of 20minutes.ch in English.

Hope to see more more depth eventually. Then they should register the domain name of 1hour.ch as a marketing ploy.

Re: Tada! www.thelocal.ch

It would have been nice if those who replied to the request for articles at least got a thank you message isn't that quite rude?

Colleagues at The Local have now posted the "official" announcement thread, so I am closing this one.
