Nextdoor.com seeking Daly City residents to become Founding Members

The City of Daly City is using Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the first private social network for neighborhoods, to foster neighbor-to-neighbor and city-wide communication. Daly City residents can use Nextdoor to create private websites for their neighborhoods where they can get to know their neighbors, ask questions, and exchange local advice and recommendations. Topics of discussion on Nextdoor are as varied as local events, school activities, plumber and babysitter recommendations, disaster preparedness, upcoming garage sales or even lost pets.

Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another to help build stronger communities. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on Google or other search engines. In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with any third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online groups, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address. If Nextdoor is available in their area, they can immediately sign up. If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established for their area, active and engaged neighbors are invited to apply to bring Nextdoor to their neighborhood.

If you are interested in being the Founding Member of your Nextdoor neighborhood website, go to www.nextdoor.com/priority and enter your address.
