'Go-getting Attitude' In Wales
A Welsh newspaper is looking to attract new readers by publishing its stories on Facebook.
The Wrexham Evening Leader has both a profile and group page on the social networking site and puts its news and sports headlines and summaries directly onto the website to entice users.
Editor-in-chief Barrie Jones told holdthefrontpage.co.uk: “We constantly want to be proactive in attracting readers to our website.
“Sitting back and expecting them to come to us is not an option - we need to go and get them.
“Hopefully once they’ve visited they’ll be impressed with what we offer online and come back again.”
The newspaper’s Facebook profile page also enables users to submit comments and participate in online polls.
Previously, the Evening Leader was launched with its own page on MySpace.
