How To Use Nextdoor To Get To Know Your Neighbours
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.
