Medicine Hat Media


The popular Facebook group for Hatters to buy, sell and trade locally has another home on 4U2CTV.

The Brooks multimedia station ( AKA Brooks TV) which is known for showcasing videos with local content has created separate stations for several Alberta communities like Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. The Medicine Hat site was constructed with a classifieds section and has also embedded the Garage Sale Medicine Hat map.

Yours truly, the creator of the facebook group GARAGE SALE MEDICINE HAT, has been working with the creator of the past few months to come up with the website.

The motivation behind the particular design of this website is to offer a better tool for those that enjoy GARAGE SALE MEDICINE HAT. Facebook worked well for the group because everyone seems to be on Facebook regularly and the group was only a click away. However, administrating a group of this kind is labour intensive in the confines of the platform and basically the group has outgrowned the clunky design of Facebook. Suffice to say, Facebook was never made for this type of activity.

On the 4U2CTV site, ads are categorized which is a feature you don’t have in Facebook. Another plus, ads self delete after a week and a half. There is no need to go back and remove old ads.

The Facebook group will remain, this new site is just another option that is 100% free.
