DescriptionA site named “Street Fight” has to deliver action and the brand new site dedicated to covering the hyperlocal industry expects to do just that— though it’s probably not the kind of action a teenager who stumbles onto the site after a Google search would expect. Hyperlocal is becoming big business. While the term usually refers to local news Street Fight has expanded the definition to anybody that targets local audiences—including advertisers. That means popular sites like Groupon which offers local discounts and Foursquare a geographically organized social networking site that allows users to “check in” to places they visit are within Street Fight’s purview.
