UK hyperlocal media audiences: What ‘voice’ is offered to citizens in hyperlocal media, given the various power dynamics, roles and relationships inherent in such participatory platforms?

My work explores audiences of online, ‘hyperlocal’ media – those citizen-led, participatory platforms set up on social media to serve local  communities with news. Through ethnographic approaches, both online and offline, I am exploring not just the value of these practices, but also the relationships and dynamics that offer citizens voice in their communities, the inherent barriers to such participation, and the extent to which they involve, engage and inform.
