Medicine Hat Media

Posts Tagged ‘4U2CTV’

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.

Brooks has it’s own TV station now. Well… sort of.

Darin Crapo, an IT specialist in Brooks, has taken a video making hobby to a higher level. He created a series of tourism videos for the county of Newell. Working in this genre and doing these projects has brought him in contact with a number of aspiring videographers in his hometown.

Darin decided he would create a forum for himself and other video makers, where they could showcase Brooks, as well as Southern Alberta. It’s called 4U2CTV and is quickly becoming Brooks TV.
