FCN2U service debuts

Today, the Forsyth County News launches a news service to reach those who are on the go.

You can now receive text messages on your mobile phone or PDA with news, weather and more.

FCN2U will deliver brief text messages -- 160 characters or less -- alerting you to top online news and information, such as breaking news, weather alerts and school closings. 

When signing up, readers can choose the categories that interest them. 

The text will often contain a hyperlink that takes the reader to our award-winning Web site,, for a more comprehensive story. 

To sign up, simply go to and click on FCN2U on the navigation bar, or on one of the banner ads. From there, follow the instructions.

With the addition of this new system we will also offer similar texting platforms/services to area organizations that need to communicate with their membership. 

This flat fee service is an affordable item in our rapidly growing portfolio of electronic products.
