The MoCoShow Frequently Asked Questions

As we continue to grow and increase our coverage, we wanted to put together a few answers to the most frequently asked questions in the comment section and through direct messages. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask in the comment section here on the website and we’ll do our best to provide you with an answer. They can be seen below:

Why is it called The MoCoShow? The MoCoShow got its name as a spinoff of the winter weather website and social media accounts known as MoCoSnow. MoCo is short for Montgomery County and it began as a podcast, hence “show” being included in the name.

What is The MoCoShow? The MoCoShow is a media company that consists of news, information, and entertainment primarily focusing on Montgomery County, MD shared through our website and associated social media accounts. We also cover some additional news from across the state of Maryland and from the DC Metro Area.

I can’t find one of your articles I saw on social media, where can I find it? You can use the search featured located at the top of the homepage on our website. Type in a keyword you’re looking for and all of the articles that include it will appear in the search. Though many of our articles are shared on social media, the website is where you can find them first (and through the search feature).

Why are there ads on your website/social media? Our small business was founded by a local teacher and is not funded by the government or owned by millionaires. Advertisements give us the ability to compensate our staff and allow our small business to exist. We work with people and businesses who operate locally to provide them with the opportunity to get the word out on what they have to offer. If you’re interested in advertising, please send an email to Patrick Herron ([email protected]) for additional information.

Why has this been posted on Facebook again if I’ve already seen it? While we would love for everyone to see everything we post on Facebook the first time we post it, that’s just not the case. On Facebook, you’ll likely see news posted twice in the first 24 hours after it’s published and once again on the weekend. It may be shared again on social media weeks, months, or years later if it’s still relevant. If you’ve seen it already and don’t care to read it, simply scroll past it and there’s nothing else to worry about.

Why hasn’t this been posted on social media yet? While most articles are shared via social media, it’s impossible for us to share them all immediately. Sometimes it takes days for an article to be shared on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram story) and about half of our articles will never make it to Instagram as a hard post.

Where can I sign up to receive e-mail updates? Our brand new newsletter is delivered daily with all of our latest articles. Sign up here.

How do you choose what you cover? We have a very small team, but try to cover as much as possible. If we have someone available to cover a story and it falls under what we usually cover, we’ll try our best to do so. With that said, we may not be able to cover everything you want the way you want us to, you will likely find some typos, we may never get to something that’s very important to you, and you may see things you don’t care about or like. With the amount of notifications we receive, it’s very likely we will not see something you have tagged us in.

Can you share my Fundraiser/GoFundMe? We are sent dozens of fundraisers each day/week and, unless they are part of a news story, aren’t able to share them. We don’t doubt the importance of the fundraisers and are certain most are for a great cause. Many fall under what we offer as advertisements, and we’d love to work with you to help raise money for your cause.

Why haven’t you responded to my direct message? We are now receiving over 500 direct messages across all of our platforms on most days and aren’t able to respond to most of them. If you have an important news tip, please send an email to [email protected]

Do you have a policy for your comment section on social media? We are receiving well over 1,000 comments/replies daily across all social media platforms and aren’t able to monitor comments made on our social media content. If you find a public comment egregious, please report it to the social media platform you see it on.

Why does it sometimes say “comments are limited” on Instagram? Comments are limited to followers of @themocoshow on Instagram. That simply means that in order to comment, you must follow our account first. It keeps spam accounts and scammers from randomly commenting on our posts and there is no conspiracy to silence anyone behind it. If @themocoshow is added as a collaborator, then we do not have control of the comment section and there is a chance you may have to follow the original poster to be able to comment.
