Hyperlocal journalism is can sometimes be called micro local journalism since this kind of reporting only refers to the local community.
After looking at 3 different hyperlocal news sites I found that they are pretty much all the same. most of them have different links of locations within a neighborhood where you can learn about what can do around the neighborhood, what events are going on, and news like mayor elections and lawbreaking news.
Hyperlocal news sites have a login common with community newspapers. the only difference is that one gets printed then dispersed and the other is just online.
While I read the different sites I noticed that the articles are written by the citizens of the town, which means they probably do not get paid to write for the hyperlocal site.
