M.E.N. Get Interactive with Manchester Live


The Manchester Evening News team recently invited online readers to get a behind the scenes insight to their working day with an online live-feed aptly titled ‘Manchester Live’.

The publication used social media tools to take viewers behind the scenes at the M.E.N Head Quarters.

Beginning the day on a Google Hangout, news reporter John Scheerhout guided viewers through how the team spends its’ morning.

Starting their online content early, the paper launched an inventive new widget designed by their specialist data journalism team. Created after a BBC study showed the price of going to football matches had massively increased - the widget allows football fans on both desktop and mobile devices to compare the costs of attending matches across different teams and leagues.
