Help us help you. With apologies to "Jerry Maguire" for borrowing his cheesy movie line, we really do want to hear from you.

How do you think we should handle tips shared with us via social media such as Facebook, Twitter and VictoriaAdvocate.com article comments.

We have created a simple online survey for you to fill out. You may be anonymous or provide your name; either way, the key is to let us know what you think. If you want more background on the issue, please check out my previous post.

All you need to do is go to Survey Monkey. Silly name, but it's a useful tool for creating unscientific surveys.

We'll discuss the results in a community forum to be scheduled in September at our offices. Stay tuned for the time and date.

For our print subscribers who might not have easy access to a computer, you also may answer the questions below and mail the survey back to us at this address: Victoria Advocate News Survey, 311 E. Constitution St., Victoria, TX 77901.
