No news on Facebook? Don't worry, the Star is still here

With or without Facebook, there are still plenty of ways you can catch up with local news with the most trusted and longest-running news service on the Northern Rivers - the Northern Star.

Our newsroom of nine highly experienced, skilled and professional journalists will continue posting up to 140 local stories directly to our website.

>>> SEE ALL OF OUR STORIES HERE

You can also catch up with news pertaining to your local government area via Tweed Daily News, Byron Shire News and Ballina Shire Advocate websites.

You can find out what's happening directly by signing up to our newsletters and news alerts by registering your email with us.

 

That way when there is breaking news you can find out straight away, or you can get our morning and afternoon newsletters, which provide a good summary of some of our top stories.

The Northern Star's Twitter account is also a great forum to catch up with what's happening in your local region.

We already have a robust and engaged 3500 followers on Twitter, and that number should grow while Facebook continue to have a dummy spit about carrying Northern Rivers news content.

If you want to take your interest in local news a step further, its cheap as chips at the moment to take up a subscription with the Northern Star.

Currently its only $1 for the first 28 days and for that you get:

  • Unlimited digital access on desktop, tablet and mobile, including trusted community news from local journalists
  • Unlimited digital access to dailytelegraph.com.au and other News+ network digital sites
  • Exclusive giveaways and discounts with +Rewards member benefits
  • Member-only access to daily crossword and sudoku puzzles
  • No lock-in contract.

We also have a very popular digital edition of the Star.

So don't wait for your Facebook feed to re-start make a move to have more of a direct relationship with us now.

Regards,

David Kirkpatrick,

The Northern Star editor.
