Coconuts Media, Hong Kong

Coconuts is a network of local news and lifestyle city websites that harnesses user-generated content and social media to enhance coverage of an urban area. We hope to channel the intensely local journalistic spirit of an alt-weekly or the metro section of a daily newspaper, but utilize the wealth of information and media available through modern technology to our advantage.
