We're a team of 46 people who are passionate about building stronger and safer neighborhoods. We're based in San Francisco, California.
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 bring back a sense of community to the neighborhood, one of the most important communities in each of our lives.
We created this company because we believe that the neighborhood is one of the most important and useful communities in a person's life. We hope that neighbors everywhere will use the Nextdoor platform to build stronger and safer neighborhoods around the world.
We are for neighbors -
- For neighborhood barbecues,
- For multi-family garage sales,
- For trick-or-treating
- We're for slowing down, children at play.
- For sharing a common hedge and an awesome babysitter,
- For neighborhood watch. Emergency response, and
- For just keeping an eye out for a lost cat.
We believe waving hello to the new neighbor says, “Welcome” better than any doormat.
We believe technology is a powerful tool for making neighborhoods stronger, safer places
to call home.
We're all about online chats that lead to more clothesline chats.
We believe fences are sometimes necessary, but online privacy is always necessary.
We believe strong neighborhoods not only improve our property value, they improve
each one of our lives.
We believe that amazing things can happen by just talking with the people next door.
We are Nextdoor. We are simply you and your neighbors, together.
Fences are sometimes necessary. But online privacy is always necessary. Nextdoor makes it safe to share online the kinds of things you'd be okay sharing with your neighbors in person.
Every neighbor has to verify their address.
Every neighbor signs in with their real name. Just like in person.
Your website is protected by password and encrypted by HTTPS.
We never share your info with advertisers.

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.
I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.
