Nextdoor App – Private social network for neighborhoods
Who do ask for referrals when you need a gutter cleaner, pet sitter, repairman or any other home service? How do you get the word out to neighbors if there has been a theft in the area? Nextdoor app is a great solution.
Nextdoor is a free, private social network for your neighborhood. It is a great way for you and your neighbors to hear what’s happening in your local community.
Neighbors use the app to update each other about community topics, local events, items for sale, recommended contractors, suspicious activity, or even free items.
You can get recommendations on who can fix a hole in the ceiling or clean gutters. Find a neighborhood pet sitter or summer work. Give away your moving boxes or sell your living room furniture. You can even ask for help with finding lost pets.
View or post items in the following Categories:
- Crime & Safety
- Free Items
- Lost & Found
It is a great place to connect with folks Nextdoor that you may not realize, are the perfect resource to help meet your need.
You can list as much or as little contact info about yourself as desired. You can choose to add a profile picture and contact information or leave your profile blank. If you include your email address this allows neighbors to message you directly. If you don’t want to get personal direct messages, leave it blank.
You can elect to receive post notifications via email on your topics of interest. For example, if you want to only receive email notification about Crime & Safety or Lost & Found you can set this preference. Or to see more postings select All or top posts in your Nextdoor settings.
If your neighborhood is new to Nextdoor app it may take a little while to get the word out to neighbors and have them start posting. To make your neighbors aware of the app and services invite them through the app to join. I find Nextdoor as an invaluable tool. I’ve hired summer college interns, pet sitters and gotten great referrals for service providers.
