Wasn't much publicity for this. Im a bit behind with my speedway star but didn't realise it was on. Else I would have gone.

It was on the Lynn Twitter and their website quite a bit prior to the event.

It sounds as if this is something like " throwing the baby out with the bathwater" in terms of depnding solely on social media ( becasue it's cool and "everyone" is connected - Hmmm ). If you then forget about the club website or the paper press - or decide they are no longer useful, this is what happens.

You might be right about the newspapers in this instance (I haven’t bought one for years) but in terms of the website there were features on there about the Lewi Kerr evening on Dec 27th and Jan 6th. 

Not sure if anyone has yet but it would be interesting to hear from somebody who went about how many people were actually there rather than judging from a couple of photos.

It was in the Lynn News before Christmas.

But you now can't read anythings from the Lynn News online without having to 'pay-per-article' or by a copy. 

Generally people only view the EDP if they're interested in Norwich City as it's actually quite poor for news on the King's Lynn area. 

As far as I'm concerned, social media and the clubs own website is the best way to get news out.

Social media definitely the best way to reach the most people nowadays but every base has to be covered ie website, newspapers, wireless. Does the West Norfolk version of the EDP not cater a bit more for the Lynn area? There certainly seems to have been more coverage of the Linnets this season.

Probably because they're top and looking likely to be promoted

Not the place for the debate but News (real news not PR puffery) cannot be free. Someone has to pay for the proper journalism. Money comes through copy sales or putting stories behind a paywall on websites. BBC News isn't free - you pay for it through the licence fee whether you watch/read BBC or not. Advertising revenue for newspapers has collapsed as Facebook/Google etc have come to dominate.
