10 Reasons I Love “Nextdoor”, And You Will Too!

10 Reasons I Love “Nextdoor”, And You Will Too!

I was invited in June of 2015 by a neighbor to join "Nextdoor.com", a social networking site. At first I was hesitant, as I am already on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and a number of other social networking websites. Why in the world would I need to be on one more? While I was still incredibly skeptical about joining another social network, I decided to give it a try, and I'm absolutely glad I did!

What is Nextdoor?

Nextdoor is the free and private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It's currently used in over 120,000 communities with millions of members across the United States.

Essentially, Nextdoor allows you to connect with your neighbors and nearby neighborhoods online. Some of it's features include; messaging, classified ads, lost and found, community calendars, crime and safety information from neighbors and local agencies, and local business recommendations and reviews.

"Right now, millions of people are using Nextdoor to get the word out about a break-in, are organizing neighborhood watch groups, looking for a trustworthy babysitter, searching for local contractors to paint their home, asking for help to find a lost dog or cat, trying to get rid of an old bike they've outgrown, and are finally learning what that nice old lady down the street's name is". ~ Bill Gelwick, Digital Advertising Consultant

Nextdoor was initially launched within the United States in October 2011, but in February 2016 the service became available within The Netherlands too. It competes with other social networks. However, Nextdoor challenges that it's better than Facebook since it's membership base is entirely invitation only and each members identify is verified, so you don't have to deal with strangers; questionable businesses and impersonators who stalk you to add you as a friend, then later message you their ingenuine and solicited spam, in many cases, so-called "business opportunities".

"The thing I like most about NextDoor is that each member you are connected with is a neighbor and has a vested interest in the same neighborhood and community as you. This is something we all instantly have in common, and makes the community a richer social networking experience". ~ Kirk Ball, President of Wren Insurance Agency

  2. You can connect with local law enforcement agencies to stay in the know of what's going on in your neighborhood and nearby.
  3. Although there is no business advertising permitted, there is tremendous potential within the Nextdoor platform to get a great deal of business and leads. Provide value and don't SPAM anyone and you'll get along just fine.
  4. You can review and recommend local businesses to other members within your neighborhood and surrounding area's.
  5. Buy, sell and trade anything with your neighbors. Nextdoor would no doubt be an asset for anyone trying to plan or find yard sales nearby.
