NextDoor: What is it? How can it help?

The Nextdoor app and online version is a social networking platform for local communities and neighbourhoods. Instead of connecting you to any user across the world, Nextdoor narrows your network to those in your surrounding area. Learn more about Nextdoor on their information page

Their mission is to “provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.”

With the Nextdoor app, users can interact with their neighbours, discuss community news, and recommend local services and businesses that they like.

Nextdoor Groups

One thing I like about Nextdoor Groups is that it is another way to stay connected to my neighbours. There were some people who were using an earlier version of this tool to organize around shared interests like hiking or reading. But now Nextdoor has officially launched Nextdoor Groups so neighbours can organize for those who may need assistance or want another social connection during this challenging time.

Please check this information to understand what social distancing means and use this to protect both yourself and your neighbours.

Thank you for being a good neighbour.
