We believe that news will always be news, and that facts, figures, insight and inspiration will remain at the centre of what people what to know or hear about…but how people get that news has changed. Yes, we said has. We know that the world is different and we know that news travels quick, news changes and so do facts and most importantly the truth sometimes is skewed by those who tell the story.
We want to find a way to get people to share news, become part of putting the news together, not just consuming it. Who we are is the same as you. We have been consumers of news and believe that technology has made it possible to do it differently, and we’d like to work on making that possible.
We live locally, work regionally, commute nationally and interact globally and we have an appetite for news that’s interactive, close to real time and engaging…interactive….and we think you do too.
Ballito News is a collaboration (it’s the new way of working) between its two founders who jointly have a passion for content and technology. Our content is derived from a community of ‘journalist’ who are the heart of our news, sharing what is relevant to them with others that have a shared interest. Our platform is purely that. We use current, adopted techologies to put it all together and our success is 100% in the hands of our community.
