Nextdoor is a new social media web site which concentrates on building local forums of residents by physically verifying (via postcard) residency within the community.
We helped launch a New Eastside community forum on Nextdoor last month and it already has over 25 members. To signup and start the verification process, go here — https://nextdoor.com/invite/uqjayndkwhczgtvjtyst
Here’s information and articles about the Nextdoor service — https://nextdoor.com/press/. My husband first read about it in the Wall Street Journal / All Things Digital article.
Anyway, it seems pretty interesting so far and definitely has potential to keep our neighborhood connected and informed about local issues events! Sign up here — https://nextdoor.com/invite/uqjayndkwhczgtvjtyst
