Nextdoor.com! A free, private, social network for your neighborhood! If your neighborhood isn’t one of the 49,000 that have already enrolled it is too easy to set it up. Truly! I did it in just a few minutes for my parents.

As you can see in their image above, when you first go to their site, you enter your address and an email address. You will know in a few seconds whether or not your neighborhood is already included in the 49,000. No worries if not, it’s simple to set up. You can see posts from anyone from your neighborhood or from nearby neighborhoods, BUT you cannot view neighborhoods that are not in your vicinity. It’s a good radius (in case of lost pet, etc.) so no worries there!

This site has gotten so much positive response from our neighborhood. It’s perfect for notifying others of a break in, or other concern, as well as a lost pet! Are you looking for a reliable contractor? All you have to do is ask, and neighbors respond with who they would (and in some cases would not!) use and any special info about the company/individual.

Here is a blip from their website about Nextdoor:

What is Nextdoor


Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.

Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

People are using Nextdoor to:

  • Quickly get the word out about a break-in
  • Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bike
  • Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Nextdoor’s mission is to use the power of technology to build stronger and safer neighborhoods.

    1. It’s fabulous! Our neighborhood (and nearby neighborhoods) really use it! Also, they will mail out 40 postcards/month to homes in your neighborhood for FREE letting them know about it! A great way to get the word around! 🙂
