SeeClickFix: Crowdsourced local problem reporting as community news

SeeClickFix: Crowdsourced local problem reporting as community news
Description SeeClickFix has become a tool for community brainstorming and problem-solving that doesn't hinge on government involvement.

"Once one of our users reported that a homeless man was sleeping on the grounds of a local school.Rather than just call in the cops,in 48 hours through a comment thread,community members found a shelter for him and arranged to get him over there,"Zack Beatty said."This kind of organizing can be more difficult on Facebook, because Facebook is mainly for raising awareness among people who are already in your personal network.We help you connect with your neighbors whether you know them personally-or-not."
