Guardian launches n0tice, an open community news platform, a place where you can share news, post details about forthcoming events or let people know you have something to sell or share. Just like a traditional noticeboard, everyone else in your locality will be able to see what you’ve posted and also take part.
The Guardian's social news platform, nOtice, is free for users (“there’s no cost to browse around, post news or events or even place a small ad. nothing, zero, zilch”) and ad-supported. Standard stuff. Where it gets interesting, though: “Featured positions are sold based on region size and duration so, as an example, if you want to be certain of premium position on all pages displayed within a one mile radius the cost is £1 per day. Prices may be subject to change so please do check on the site for the actual price on the day.”
