What Is Nextdoor? A few years ago, I always understood that Nextdoor is a new social platform. A Nextdoor app is a social software built on this platform.

Nextdoor is also a social software. But the service objects of this platform do not serve all people like Facebook or other social communications.

Or in other words, when we use the Nextdoor social platform, our attributes change.


We will become real people on this virtual network platform.

Next, let's take a look at how Nextdoor officially evaluates and defines itself.

What Is Nextdoor

Nextdoor is the neighborhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services. We believe that by bringing neighbors together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on.

Building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighborhoods are one of the most critical and valuable communities in our lives, have been a guiding principle for Nextdoor since the beginning.

Nextdoor's purpose is to cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on. Our mission is to be the neighborhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services.

How To Understand Nextdoor

Through the above official definition, it is not difficult to understand its original intention. Although Nextdoor did not display any SOCIAL words, it does not matter.

It wants to build a community platform that can communicate in a virtual network based on real society.

Real people can be called neighbors on this platform, and they can do any communication, including business and services.

This idea sounds perfect.

So, Nextdoor has recently been public. It's because everyone identification with Nextdoor.

I am now gradually improving my initial impression of Nextdoor.

From the initial social platform on the Internet to the current community service station. Does this sound great?

On this community service station, we can do anything. Please download the Nextdoor app first.

In this post, I introduced What Is Nextdoor App.

How To Use Nextdoor For Business

At first glance, Nextdoor is to establish communication between neighbors. This also includes some commercial communication. It's Business opportunities on Nextdoor.

I am not used to some big companies advertising on the platform.

Do you want to know what is most needed in our community every day?

  • Help to look after the child for 2 hours.

  • I don't know whose house my cat went to.

  • I was missing a repairman when I wanted to repair the sewer pipe.

  • Found that the herbicide is gone.

These are all business activities. I like small business activities that can build a personal brand in the community and help the neighbors.

For example, everyone said that Jane loves pets very much and can provide short-term care services.

Many neighbors say that Jane has helped take care of their pets, and the charge is not expensive.

I like business activities that enjoy a high reputation in the community.

    Local Deals are the primary paid product on the Nextdoor platform. In the beginning, we did need to do this. But with the establishment of word of mouth. The personal brand will be produced.

Once the above seven items are completed, we can start our business.

From my point of view, one of the most important things to pay attention to is to carry out business activities in the community.

We must consider that you and your neighbors are real, and it is possible to know many people.

This factor must be taken into consideration in your business activities. Must pay attention to the establishment of a personal brand.

Here is a post dedicated to how to conduct business activities on Nextdoor.

Is Nextdoor Safe

The answer is yes. Know that when new users register, they need to provide factual information.


Nextdoor.com is like any other social media, public or private. 

It shares what you allow it to share. And not just anyone can join your neighborhood group. 

Nextdoor.com requires that you use your real name and verify your address and allows you to choose where your information will be shared.

The website is password-protected and encrypted, and Google or other search engines do not index the information shared.

In short, this is a private social network that is designed to stay private. Here is their statement on safety.

When you want to join as a newcomer, the community leaders will receive a request letter. The lead must verify the basic information of the applicant.

However, any information is not safe. I mean, Nextdoor is safe, and we can use it with confidence.


The Nextdoor community platform has dramatically facilitated our activities in the community.

When there is a problem with my shower, I don't have to find maintenance personnel worldwide.

Just ask the neighbors on the platform. You can get a solution, directly find a maintenance person, or know the phone number of the maintenance person.

All this information is verified and screened out by neighbors.

I can also share what my neighbors are happy about every day on Nextdoor.

Finally, I hope that our community will develop better and better.
