| The Freedom to Tell Your Story

 

Newsocracy LLC is a social media news service. Tell us the kinds of stories you would like to see and we will cover them in an in-depth way that is seldom seen in traditional media. Our news stories focus on the things we hope you find interesting and are available via social media sites like:

YouTube  |  Facebook  |  Twitter  | Pinterest | Tumblr | Buy Photos | Redbubble | Cafe Press

So get to work. Give us an idea. Something you know something about or want to know more about. Tell us if you know people we should talk to or who have some special knowledge about the topic. Email us with suggestions at newsocracy@yahoo.com or call 601.706.9008. We are based in Mississippi, but we know how to drive and occasionally we even fly. So don't let geography limit your ideas.

 

Our Other Services

Often a company or other organization will contact Newsocracy because they want a longer form video piece that tells their story in a more comprehensive manner than traditional TV news allows. They might use the story in a variety of ways: on their website and/or social media pages, as part of a media relations campaign or as an intro at events or public meetings, etc.

In these cases, after discussion about the story’s goal, Newsocracy produces a journalistically sound story, interviewing a variety of people and shooting video that illustrates a particular topic or service a client wishes to provide more information about. The client may use the story in any way they desire. The story may also appear on Newsocracy’s 14 social media sites.  

Call us at 601.706.9008 or e-mail us at newsocracy@yahoo.com for more information about the paid services we provide.
