Nextdoor privacy, find snoops, fix bad Wi-Fi and more

NEX

Each week, I receive tons of questions from my listeners about tech concerns, new products and all things digital. Sometimes, choosing the most interesting questions to highlight is the best part of my job. This week, I received questions about Nextdoor privacy, finding snoops, fixing bad Wi-Fi and more. It seemed like a fabulous idea when it was released in 2011: Develop an invitation-only, closed social media network where only you and your verified neighbors share updates, sell things, and help each other out. I understand that's easier said than done. If you don’t want to do that, click or tap here to get the insider steps to protect your privacy on Nextdoor.

Nextdoor's Co-Founder On Bridging The Gaps Between Real-World And Online Communities

NEX

Nextdoor's Co-Founder On Bridging The Gaps Between Real-World And Online Communities. We were met with a particularly interesting challenge with Nextdoor: when we started the company in 2010, a Pew Research Institute study cited that 29% of Americans knew only some of their neighbors, while 28% didn’t know a single neighbor by name. To create a real sense of identity for our communities, we decided to take on the difficult challenge of using geographically-bounded neighborhoods as the core identity and verifying that our members were residents of those neighborhoods. Lastly, we built features to help neighbors support and help one another, creating touch-points for interactions online to lead to interactions in the real world. Whether reuniting a neighbor with a lost pet, or banding together after a natural disaster like a flood, fire, or hurricane, giving away a used sofa, or bringing neighbors together for a community event, our platform was designed to create conversations and facilitate the building of social capital in their communities.

Nextdoor: Useful neighborhood tool or threat to privacy? - Wrangler News

NEX

This is part one of a two-part series). If you’re an average citizen of today’s wireless world, you know the drill: Go online, where internet companies invite you to share, connect, network or reach out to family and friends. And, oh yes, they’d like you to sign up for their free services by filling out a simple application. But this isn’t the kind of connecting we remember our own families doing as we were growing up. It’s not sitting with the neighbors next door and looking them in the eye while you share stories about your kids and theirs, the new postal carrier on the block, the Jones’s missing cat, the high school kid who lives down the street who drives too fast, too dangerously. Again, you know the drill. So ubiquitous are these seemingly ever-present dispensers of “news” that even such municipalities as Chandler and Tempe have engaged with yet another, though still lesser-known but growing social media company, Nextdoor. Nextdoor’s founders’ stated goal of “creating meaningful online communities” thus carries with it the burden of potential privacy issues. For instance, Nextdoor’s official Privacy Policy states that potential users of the site can become members if another Nextdoor member in their neighborhood invites them (if they supply their residence address) or “by providing…your name and street address and email address…[and] additional authenticating information that we request, such as credit card numbers, the last four digits of your Social Security number, and unique codes emailed to you, or your home or mobile phone number.”.
