Comcast Corp. has resurrected the hyperlocal news site EveryBlock in Philadelphia.
The social-media site ( www.everyblock.com) aggregates more than 600 data feeds.
EveryBlock, which officially was relaunched on Tuesday, allows users who register to customize a Twitter-like feed to city zip codes or neighborhoods.
On Wednesday, the free site - available to anyone - lacked Xfinity advertisements or any other connection to Comcast. The company said it was offering EveryBlock as a community service.
Paul E. Wright, Comcast director of local media development and co-founder of Open Access Philly, said the site was designed to be "your single source for everything you need to know about your neighborhood."
