How well do you know your neighbors? Do you even know their names? Nextdoor, a private social network exclusively for neighbors, is looking to change that. The free portal provides a way for neighbors to communicate with one another and in fact, become more helpful and yes, neighborly. The people who live next door can be of great help when looking for a trustworthy plumber, keeping an eye out for a lost dog or organizing a neighborhood watch. Nextdoor is made only for those who live in the same ‘hood with address verification and strict privacy and safety measures. The app is venturing into cities as well, facilitating direct contact between residents and city, police and fire officials. [Source: Nextdoor]
