How well do you know your neighbors? If you wish you knew them a little better, there's a social network just for that.

Nextdoor

This social network has three main goals.

1. Building a stronger neighborhood - neighbors can connect with each other to improve relationships and share useful information. Users can post things like missing pets, construction or events happening in the neighborhood.

2. Keeping the neighborhood safe - neighbors can send out alerts to each other of any possible dangers in the neighborhood. Users can alert their neighbors to crimes or other threats to safety.

3. Sharing goods and recommendations - neighbors can easily find and get rid of items as well as ask for and receive recommendations about things like babysitters or neighborhood kids mowing lawns.

This social network ensures users safety by making neighbors verify their address before joining the group. 

There are more than 16,000 neighborhoods currently on Nextdoor, but if yours isn't one of them, you can easily create a page when you sign up.
