    Reported.ly was shuttered on Aug. 31.

    Reporting by Rachel Wise and Katie Grunik.

    For 20 months, Reported.ly adopted a grassroots approach to telling stories by sourcing from social media to get perspectives from people around the world. But on Aug. 31, Reported.ly was shuttered after its parent company, First Look Media, pulled its funding. We spoke with Reported.ly founder and editor Andy Carvin about what the team learned along the way.

    I think having a more open relationship with the public allows us to cover stories in ways that add more value to them. – Andy Carvin, Reported.ly founder and editor
