"Through our work on neighbourhoods and community empowerment, the role of online social networking and other 'web 2.0' applications at the very local level has emerged as an area that needs more exploration. Supported by CLG’s Empowerment Fund, the Young Foundation is embarking on Local 2.0, a new programme of practical work on hyper-local or 'neighbourhood media' – meaning internet and mobile services that connect users with the people and neighbourhoods they live and work in."
