What is LOCALISM??

Are you using Localism?

I am new to ActiveRain and I would like to know more about LOCALISM.  What are the best sources for training and "know how" for this free website from ActiveRain?

Are you seeing any success from Localism?

I think that the Localism.com site per se is no longer being supported by Active Rain. The explanation I was given is that they found that these posts were getting better SEO if they were on the Active Rain site (though I'm not really sure I understand that fully). You can code your posts as hyper-local whe you post them.

Odd, I had lost my grandfathered rainmaker status...I got a call last week to come back to AR after just plain being too busy..and I asked the caller if that would unlock my Localism account, which was my favorite place to post.  He said yep, that would do it..and now I find no Localism...at least one I can post to.  I found hyperlocal, and am going in to see if Localism copied the photo I just posted.  I would like it if the new owners would reopen Localism .. I thought it was great, and got contact off of it.
