What? Another social network to add to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Diaspora, MySpace, and the smörgåsbord of also-rans? Fantastic. But wait, because this one, named Nextdoor, offers something a little bit different.
Nextdoor is a social network for neighborhoods, offering communities their own private space to hang out, communicate, and discuss local topics of interest without fear of trolls getting involved in the conversation.
As the video suggests, neighbors are now much less likely to know each other in this day and age than in previous generations. And that is partly because of the Internet giving us another outlet to make friends.
Nextdoor is an attempt to use the Internet for good, bringing back the sense of community to local neighborhoods. It’s a cracking idea but I’m not convinced it’ll work. It really depends how many of us actually want to get to know the people living next door to us.
