The Myrtle Beach Post is getting a whole new look and purpose for the website and social media pages beginning this weekend.
The web page will become the primary source of independent news and analysis for local residents on issues that affect the growth and prosperity of the Grand Strand and Horry County.
But we won’t be your typical beach news source.
We will still be free — no subscription required.
But we’re shifting our focus to the issues residents now say matters most — growth versus our economy, and the politics behind the scenes of local and state governments that are shaping our future here.
Unlike other media sources, we won’t be the ones doing all the talking.
We’ve created a new forum where engaged residents can discuss the decisions being made by our elected officials, and how it affects our lives, neighborhoods, and wallets.
This Facebook community — Horry County Residents Who Love Living Here — is a troll-free forum for conversations on everything from growth and new development, to favorite photos of beach sunrises, special events, and community announcements.
Some folks stop by just to say good morning. We’ve been known to post photos of our dogs.
The Myrtle Beach Post Facebook page will continue to be our entertainment source for tourists and locals to learn about weekend events, new business openings, other important announcements and our widely popular photo lunch break.
If you’re not on Facebook, you can still see our feed on the web page so you won’t miss out on anything happening along the Grand Strand.
We are deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support over the past year for this venture.
With our social media following of nearing 10,000, we are the largest independent news source on the Grand Strand, and growing more every day.
Thank you to all of our readers!
If you’re new to this page, bookmark us now, and stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details on the big launch.
We will see on the other side when the new page goes live!
