How To Use Nextdoor To Get To Know Your Neighbours

NEX

Not all of us have an easy time getting to know the people who live above, below, or next to us. When you've only exchanged brief hellos, it can be tough to ask your neighbours for help or advice. Like any social network, Nextdoor may have issues depending on how your neighbours use it. For example, The New York Times pointed out that in the past, Nextdoor had issues with people using racial profiling when reporting others they suspected of crimes or other negative intent. Anne Dreshfield, Manager of Content Strategy and Digital Communications at Nextdoor, says that if your neighbours make posts that involve racial profiling (which violates Nextdoor's community guidelines), you have the ability to report them to be reviewed and potentially taken down. They might mainly post when they have free stuff they're getting rid of or when they're looking for plumber recommendations, or your neighbourhood might organise community events through Nextdoor. Some suggestions that Dreshfield has for making the most of Nextdoor:.

Nextdoor App’s Polling Map Shows Voting Locations, Neighbors Who Voted – Heavy.com

NEX

Nextdoor App has integrated a polling map that shows users where the nearest voting locations are and allows voters to figure out what polling stations they should go to based on their precinct. If you don’t have the app, you can use the website to enter your address, find polling locations, and check to see if your neighbors voted. Polling locations are most often located in school gymnasiums, churches, and town hall buildings, but vary by precinct. This is what makes Nextdoor App so useful on election day. Back in July, the New York Times reported that Nextdoor was gearing up for the 2018 political primaries by “partnering with public agencies and local governments and encouraging civil political discourse in an increasing partisan America.”. When it’s not an election year, Nextdoor can be used for a variety of other things.

Community social network platform, Nabo, shutting down. Tells users to move to Nextdoor - Ausdroid

NEX GOOG +1 more NEX GOOG GOOGL

The news of the closure comes after the Australian Financial Review reported back in August that Nabo’s major shareholders (including Fairfax Media, Reinventure, and Seven West Media) would sell the business to Nextdoor, which has only launched into the Australian market last month. From 8 November, the Nabo website will become read-only, meaning users won’t be able to post statuses or make comments or reviews. Sign up with Nextdoor to stay in touch with your community – it’s like moving to a new home, with new neighbours to meet and some familiar faces to welcome.”. Users can (and are being recommended to) sign up and migrate over to Nextdoor, but users can, if they choose too, to delete their Nabo accounts altogether and not sign up to Nextdoor as well. If you would like to check out Nextdoor, you can check out their website here or download their app directly from Google Play via the link below:.

Nextdoor Wants To Connect You To Your Neighbourhood

NEX FB

With Facebook basically dominating the local social networking scene, it's going to take something special to break Zuckerberg's stranglehold on local buy/sway/sell groups, community event notifications and other suburban information-sharing. But Nextdoor, is trying to do just that. With a presence in the US and several European countries, Nextdoor has quietly launched in Australia. When I spoke to founder and CEO Nirav Tolia last week, I noted that was sceptical that anyone could successfully launch a social network that would crack Facebook's dominance. But Nextdoor is very different to Facebook. For a start, once a neighbourhood is added to Nextdoor, there's no administrator who can decide whether to accept or boot someone from the group. In order for a neighbourhood to become active in Nextdoor, the first person who registers needs to get another nine folks, in the neighbourhood on board. So far, there are almost 550 active neighbourhoods in Australia with 87 in Sydney and 94 in Melbourne. Whereas Facebook separates things like buy/swap/sell, interest groups, commercial services and other local groups, Nextdoor pulls them all together.

San Francisco-based private social network for neighbourhoods, Nextdoor, has launched in Australia with the establishment of its Asia Pacific headquarters in Sydney as part of an expansion into the region. The company says it is looking to replicate its global success in Australia with its Asia Pacific base in Sydney and plans to appoint a country manager to drive growth across the nation and into Asian markets. “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Nextdoor in Australia, our first market in the Southern Hemisphere," Tolia said.

The local pride and sense of mateship shared by Australians is perfectly aligned with the practical ways our platform enables richer personal connections in real life." "Australia is the first market in the Southern Hemisphere for Nextdoor and it has chosen Sydney for its Asia Pacific headquarters which will provide it with a launch pad into further Asian markets," Blair said.
