For 2015-Update on Facebook Group Somervell County Breaking News

1 January 2015 at 5:46:44 PM

Facebook link to Somervell County Breaking News and Scanner. 

I'm kind of amazed today because a page I created in 2012 on Facebook has now topped 1020 members.Readers may know that some years back (2008) I had a feed that hub created online for me  from a scanner I gave him for some birthday (can't remember which one, birthday, that is). I wasn't happy with the way I had programmed around it on  as far as people commenting and listing scanner topics. At one point, I tried to use Twitter as a way to share scanner info, but the problem, at least at that point, was that not many people even used Twitter. So it fell by the wayside. 

I, however, still listened to that dang scanner all the time. One of those things where you get someone a gift but I was actually the one using it more. So, in 2012 I made a page on Facebook for items such as scanner breaking news, etc. Seemed to me to be a much better and richer venue for immediate posts, and it's been, except for occasional links to that group here (such as the sad one today regarding a man who lost his life in a car accident), a separate site. I keep them separate because we all here can get pretty opinionated and it's not everyone's cup of tea, which is fine. I'm also not myself a huge Facebook fan but making an exception for this. 

All that to say that I"m glad to have a place we all, as a community, can share, that is crowd-sourced, for stuff like fires, police, traffic, and other latest breaking news etc. In other words, I love it when people participate and share directly. Again, I like posting what I hear on the scanner when I happen to be listening. And to say that if you have difficulties with the online scanner feed, please address them to Paul Harper. Somervell County Scanner is his website, and he's the one that set up the feed, so is the best resource to ask.
