One of the first online news sources in the nation, Boston.com has remained an exclusively digital outlet of honest, current and relevant news.
Although they don’t have a stated mission, judging by the sections on their website and the content published, it seems Boston.com aims to inform Boston residents with a majority of local news, national news when relevant to Bostonians, sports coverage, and city events.
Because Boston.com is owned by the Boston Globe, although they lack their own political and global news sections, they are able to publish a significant amount of content directly linked and credited to the Globe.
They publish content on several platforms including Twitter, Instagram, and on their main website – boston.com. Their Twitter feed is updated consistently with breaking news, ongoing news updates, and frequent photo and video content.
