  author={Kyungsik Han and Patrick C. Shih and John M. Carroll},
We introduce our ongoing work in community networks and present a system that aggregates geographical community news and events information from local news and social media. Our goal is to present community information according to its content and to make it more visible to local residents, thereby increasing community awareness. We also present a data analysis of how local residents are connected by analyzing the usage of their tweets and discuss future directions for our system.
