    It's hard to get connected with the neighbors in your community when you all work 8 hours a day. Bring the neighborhood watch meetings to your phone on an easy to use community chat platform.

    Do you still have furniture that you purchased 2 years ago which you're not making use of? Find someone in your neighborhood who can make good use of the stuff you wish to give away. It's a great way to reach out to those close to you who could take advantage of your old items.

    A lot of people are interested in buying Girl Scout cookies but just don't know where to buy them aside from catching a troop outside their local grocery store. You can post about it on a neighborhood forum and sell 10 boxes to the families around the block in minutes.

    With 1000s of kids running around on Halloween night, some neighbors can get frustrated with the constant doorbell ringing, while others are handing out full-sized candy bars. Nextdoor lets you connect with neighbors so that you can post what type of candy you'll be handing out this year.

    If you're moving to a new country and don't know anyone, it's probably a good idea to at least start by meeting the people that live within a 10 block radius from you. This social network helps connect people in a specific neighborhood with online forums and meet-up opportunities.

    If you're trying to find your pet, he or she is probably within 5 to 10 miles from your house. Ask the neighbors quickly on a convenient group forum from your phone.

    When you are new in the neighborhood and you don't know what's around, you want to get some recommendations from someone who's lived there for more than 5 minutes. That's why this app is so helpful.

  • Great asset to stay connected! Nov 20, 2020

    By Cathy Lu
    I appreciate this phone app as it allows us to meet, stay connected and help our neighbors out. I also love seeking and buying items from each other, especially with urgent messages and pet found/lost. I also appreciate their recommendations for a certain business or information exchange like gardening tips, in need of borrowing a lawn mower or “help! My kid dropped the egg carton. Does anyone have a couple of eggs to spare?” :) I like how I can hide the sponsored posts and keep scrolling to read neighbors’ post. The problem I have is: Next Door doesn’t regularly verify if each user still live in the current address. In my neighborhood, a lot of people have moved in and out so I don’t feel comfortable I sharing any information with people outside of my neighborhood and am tired of people not responding till a year later, saying that they’ve moved out. Under “For Sale & Free”, I appreciate the Expired feature because people would post and leave items online and simply dont respond back whether or not it’s already sold. I’d like to request another feature if possible, allow our own posts for sale to have the following status: available, pending and sold. That way, people won’t keep bothering me with “is it available?” and not respond back whenever I say “yes”.
  • Great app during a natural disaster Feb 17, 2018

    By Rynayth
    I’m from Ventura which was greatly affected by the Thomas fire, the largest wildfire to date in California. This app was the best way our city communicated with us during the 3 weeks the fire burned. Through this app, the city was able to quickly post information as they received it about the fire, when people could return home, where to pick up free masks for the smoke and workshops and resources for those who lost their home. Even after the fire was finally put out and the news crews left, neighbors in the affected areas who had lost their home were exchanging information about how to clear the debris, reporting suspicious activity and exchanging experiences trying to manage their insurance claims. I have learned about the difficulties of rebuilding after a natural disaster through this app. I thought this app was mostly just to buy and sell things with rude people but once our city went through a disaster, this app became invaluable, informative and helpful for everyone in our city. To the Nextdoor app team, thank you for playing an integral part in our city’s ongoing recovery.

    Good way to keep a finger on the pulse of your community. Amazing how varied the content is, both good (enjoining) and bad (devisive). It's great oracle for civic discussion. On the utilitarian aspect of the actual input to the site, I often get frustrated by the placement of the "Send" (paper plane). Inadvertently hitting it while still inputting content can oft times prove frustrating.

    I really like this idea and it seems like the developers put a lot of effort into building out a lot of different functionality. BUT that doesn't matter because the insane amount of ads essentially makes the app unusable. I understand the need for ads, and I'm supportive of them being there (although I do think a premium ad-free version should be an option) but it's literally every other post. LITERALLY! I get it, money supports the business and all that, but be reasonable.
  • Options on the app Apr 23, 2021

    By ilivemyhome
    I love this app for so many reasons. I like knowing about car break ins, and things to be aware of for safety of my children at specific times in the day when people mention strange people in the neighborhood. I love responses I get about experienced neighbors have had with specific out patient care like doctors, dentists, and other providers in the area. This app is great for new comers and very welcoming. We learn about good restaurants, outdoor activities, and good vendors etc. The reason I gave this a low rating is because I would live the option to hide specific posts about animals on the lose, or families looking for their animals, and everyone letting each other know when their animals came home or when/where they were located. There have been SO many posts that I wish that there could be a separate option within this app to view the “animals on the loose” posts. It would streamline pertinent information for those individuals who are looking for their animals, and if one was wandering ppl can post in this specific area and allow non-animal owners, or those of us who aren’t seeing lost animals, to streamline the information on the page.

    Does what it's needs to do. There are loads of annoying ads, but the people (users) can make it or break it and unfortunately the most people use this app to complain about everything they can think of and by doing so render the app not user-friendly (you will find yourself plowing through the constant flow of complaints or comment)

    Only had this app for a month or so, Bit strange to navigate at 1st but sort of got in now, Stopped using it as much now and hardly use it now as it's just like facebook, full of moaning people near you and more adverts than you need and Just getting more and more commercial like facebook.not about neighbours just another platform to bombard you with adverts. I expect I'll be uninstalling it soon.

    Love what I can find & the communication with the community & you'll always find a good laugh somewhere. But I've had to stop typing on a comment a few times so when I get back to it, of course the phone went to sleep so you open it up & it's gone 😲!!! And you can't find an easy (like the upper right corner) options bottens to find drafts, which is where it should go. Any other sites I've used, when I open the phone again, it goes right back to the last thing I was in the middle of.PLEASE fix😭
  • The good, the glitchy, and the bad customer care Apr 19, 2019

    By Snazzy12
    This app is fine. It’s great for selling because it’s way safer than CL, but it’s really no different than any other social network. Everyone with their inputs and soapboxes is still here. That’s fine though, who cares. What burgers me about this app is that it is extremely glitchy and their policies make no sense. Every message I receive renders a double notification bubble, you can’t change pics out in your ‘for sale’ listings, even though there is a button to click to change them. You can sit there clicking “remove photo” until the second coming ... It ain’t coming down. So then you have to delete the entire posting altogether and repost it. When you have 15-20 postings, this becomes an issue. I’ve now moved exactly 1.5 miles down the road, which means (apparently to these guys) MARS, and they take the liberty of deleting my items. Not put their ability to be sold on hold, not muting the post, not even archiving, but simply deleting them altogether. When I contacted customer care about the issue, they said they could do nothing, as this was their policy. Hmmmm. This tells me they have a VERY lazy and/or sloppy coding team and complaisant customer care group.

    Excellent app for seeing and hearing what's going on in your neighbourhood. Good for advice if looking for a reputable local business, buy & sell, local groups, etc. Some right richard heads on there, but they're everywhere, and you can block other users if their drivel becomes overbearing. Very handy and informative, and has become one of the first apps that I check every day.
  • These guys have no clue how to write a decent app Oct 18, 2021

    By Phoenix2000
    They’ve changed it so you can only see the latest few of your saved items, anything past the few they show is now completely inaccessible. The new app design is awful, it takes a bunch more taps and scrolling to do what used to just be a couple taps. I primarily use this for the stuff for sale, and they’ve completely messed it up, tons more painful to use and everything is much harder to use! The app is very spammy, because you don’t have anyway to exclude topics you aren’t interested in, only to “follow” to see everything. For example, it seems like half the posts are about pets, which I have no interest in, but also no way to disable. There's no way to disable notifications for just one thread, so any thing you ever do or participate in, you'll get harassed and inundated with a barrage of notifications for any active conversation. The only other alternative you have is to never participate in any thread to avoid the barrage of notifications. Yeah, that's an incredibly "smart" way to build a social-type app. Not! And even though the app supposedly has notifications settings, it seems to ignore them because I keep getting notifications for types of things I’ve clearly disabled. Because of this I have to keep notifications for the WHOLE app turned off, which means I don't see important stuff going on, which really makes the app pretty useless to me.
  • No real privacy Mar 7, 2020

    By ManadaBanana
    You have no ability to choose not to display your full name. They prohibit anything other than your complete name. You have virtually no privacy at that point their support states it’s because it’s how you introduce yourself to complete strangers. But, I choose what information I give to complete strangers up and including if I am going to share my last name. I find it disgusting that they force it to be shown on the site not allowing the user to decide how much information of theirs is displayed. You can run the site and do a verification process while still allowing people personal display preferences. It’s disgusting and sorry but it’s perfect breeding ground for killers, serial killers, rapist and other. People get your name and your town and if they read enough of your comments I am sure they can use it for a hunting ground so sorry that I think the practice of not allowing someone privacy is disgusting. I thought the app would be great but it is a little to fascist to me. Until they allow some privacy measures for their users I won’t be utilizing this or any program of the like. I don’t introduce my entire name and area I live in to complete strangers especially not online. Not even my Facebook displays all identifying markers for people. So sorry I think this app needs to remember that there are sick people out there and they are helping not hindering those sickos.

    Will update review once issues are resolved. I love the idea of this app especially since I own and operate a small business. My issues with this app are as follows 1.) Pictures don't load correctly or take forever to load for business pages. 2.) When running ads, I cannot upload a picture of my services to run with that ad. When I click on "add picture" it doesn't load or take me to the screen to add it. 3.) Business page Verification doesn't allow for uploading pictures currently either.
  • Users Spreading of Opinions Sprinkled with Misinformation and Flat Out Lies Sep 25, 2021

    By nordalieh
    I wish Nextdoor would fix this: users seem to be allowed to force their opinion of how others should use the platform and misquote or lie about the community guidelines. I have muted users who attempt hostility like this by using the “mute” feature but the muted users can still see my posts. I don’t want them to see my posts. They are not healthy people and I would really prefer the mute feature behave more like a block. I have seen an unprecedented number of authoritarian types attempting to control how others use your platform and ethically there is a problem with that. I believe we should follow your rules not individual rules made up by local bullies. If there was a way to stop this and have Nextdoor intervene when terms and conditions or community guidelines are misquoted by users then user engagement and traffic might go up and it would definitely create a more harmonious experience. Maybe an additional reporting option for misquoting your terms? I have essentially been bullied for standing up for others even though I correctly quoted your terms and conditions, community guidelines. What can be done to resolve this issue? I am 100% certain I am not the only one. Otherwise, I love this platform and would love to continue using it.

    10/5: UPDATE SLOW/BUGGY. Report feature not working & poorly designed. Good concept, poor execution! Doesn't show in my installed apps? Needs help w/member (advertising) business pages. Too much user spam & no tools/unclear system for leads. Depends on your neighborhood & surrounding neighborhoods you keep in your feed & the leads & community leaders. They will have a fine dance to allow free speech & yet keep things civil. This will be easier/harder depending on the neighborhoods in the feed.
  • Your satisfaction will depend on your expectations Aug 19, 2018

    By The Pragmatic Corvid
    I’ve been a Nextdoor user for several years. I’ve found it to be an excellent place to post things I have for sale (as long as they’re not vegetables from my garden, eggs from my chickens, quilts I’ve made, etc.). My neighbors have also kept me informed about various criminal activities in the area, events that might disrupt my commute, contractors both good and questionable, and opening dates for new businesses. On the other hand, discussions about serious and meaningful topics are often flagged for removal, even if the discussion is lively and respectful. Nextdoor policies also prohibit neighbors posting services they offer (babysitting, dog walking, house-sitting, etc.) unless the person creates a business page (a bureaucratic tangle few individuals are willing to navigate). Finally, it’s entirely too easy to flag someone’s post without first contacting them to explain the problem. So, if all you’re looking for is an online forum to learn about which roofers are dependable or get rid of that old furniture cluttering up your garage, you’ll be happy with Nextdoor. If you’re thinking you’ll have a place to discuss the positions of your local elected representative or the merits of proposed legislation, or let everyone nearby know about your side business, you’ll likely be disappointed.

    I useto look at this app almost daily but it no longer works. For the past 2 days, I would open the app and nothing would load. It just showed a white/gray screen as if it was loading and then I would get an error. I uninstalled the app and re-installed it to see if that would fix the issue and now I can't get logged back in. I put my password in, it sent me a code to my email to confirm my identity, and then it said my user name and PW were incorrect. Tried PW reset and keep getting an error.
  • Good intent but not beneficial to the community Apr 12, 2019

    By ohmygodjon
    I’ve had this app for over a year. While the app is useful for certain things going on in your personal community, you find there can also be a negativity by those close to you. In the year that i had the app I post only one single communication which was to find shelters near me that I could donate clothing to rather than dropping them to a Goodwill or other for profit organizations. The intent was to donate items to people in need in my community rather than give them to mass organizations that in turn use those items for profit. In less than 24 hours of me posting my single post, my entire account was suspended because I chose not to disclose my last name. I believe that info was not relevant to my intent to benefit my community however, someone within my community complained that my last name was not posted & Nexdoor chose to delete my account based of that complaint. I’ve read multiple posts over the past year about petty things such as how to get rid of the homeless or how annoying cyclist are but I find myself suspended for not providing my personal information which was only noticed from a post meant to help my community. This app supports those that only have negative complaints about the communities it serves but does not support those actively trying to help those in need within those communities.

    DUMPED. I said: "If I have to reset my news preferences once more, I'm dumping this app." Best is to read chronologically, not Top Posts. 😠 The 'so-called' "Top Posts", scenario, it makes it competitive and definitely not best! My preference is for latest first. Why does "Recent Activity" have to be limited to 60 days then needs to be reset? Once you make your choice you should have the freedom to stay with it or change when you want to. More dictatorship from tech!
  • Poorly monitored/managed application for neighbors that truly care about their neighborhoods Oct 8, 2018

    By donthidethetruth
    First off they allow ads for puppies and kittens To be given away for free. It’s a known fact that this encourages those looking for bait for training their fighting dogs and good for their large snakes to pick up these animals. Applications that care about the welfare of animals do not allow ads that list them as free for this simple fact. Secondly the application is full of ads for all kinds of items pasted in between the posts. Thirdly I wrote a post asking my neighbors if they knew when google fiber was going to be installed in my neighborhood as their contractors had put up “no parking “ signs in front of all our homes two weeks ago but no one had started working. I stated in my post that I was asking because I had contractors coming to work on my home that would have to park in front of my home and that I had called the construction hotline provided to us but they did not know when the work would start or who was going to be doing the work so I couldn’t even try calling the contractor to ask. Next door sent me an email an hour after I posted this stating they removed my post because it was “soapbox “. Not sure how that is determined but definitely not an app that is interested in neighbors gathering and sharing information that is pertaining to them.

  • Loving it so far! Sep 14, 2018

    By Missypoo <333
    Just joined in a few days ago and I think I’ll be happy with the concept... Staying informed and connected with your neighborhood and community can make for a better more enriching and fuller life! Promoting the feeling that “we’re all in this together” can only be a good thing cuz even adults need reminders on etiquette and how to communicate with both integrity and grace, which has sadly been going out of style as of late... This app can be the platform for recreating a better, bolder, more involving, more compassionate community with informative and inspiring neighbors who can guide us and teach us that we’re really not all that different from one another and most of us just want the same things... To love and to be loved, to be understood as we are and the capacity and openness to understand others without rancor but with respect and compassion. Well, I’m a dreamer and probably an optimistic, most times, and one can only hope for the best, yet this app gives us all the opportunity, the voice, and to take action to do more than just hope... one neighborhood at a time...!
  • Awesome APP why didn’t any think of this sooner?!? Jul 27, 2018

    By HollieM510
    Ok so let’s admit it, community and neighborhood values have changed in the past days 10 years. We no longer know our neighbors it’s just not the same. Technology may be part of the reason why, amongst other reasons too but hey if technology is keeping neighbors isolated and not out talking to one another then why not use it to our advantage right? .. and that is why I appreciate this App so much. It’s a place to share good news, bad news, warnings/alerts... missing pets/items...offer refer promote or inquire about services ... pitch ideas and generally just communicate with one another. It helps maintain a safer surrounding Keeps people aware and informed and I guess is the new way to be a neighborhood.. take what I can get but I have to admit so far there’s been at least 3 incidents in which this app has benefited me personally ... it’s great. Get your neighborhood involved guys.. it can’t hurt but I can help. Totally recommend the neighborhood app...at least check it out. Thanks to the developers ... one app I’m sure of is this one. Love it!

    This a app by far is my favorite of all. It has all kinds of groups and interests for everyone. Everyone on it, so far I've found are very nice and decent people. I have recommended it to a lot of my friends, the only thing that i find and is mainly for my friends is that you don't communicate in Spanish or other languages, that i have been able to find. In my area there's a lot of Spanish speaking people that would love the app too.I've seen articles in the internet that post both languages
  • Unkind Comments & inappropriate language Nov 2, 2018

    By Disappointed Neighbor
    I check this site several times a day & love to see what’s happening in our area. Sometimes I can help people, or at least encourage them when they have a problem. However, yesterday I was dismayed at the response of one of the “founding” neighbors as he made extremely disheartening comments to a lady who was fearing that a crime may be coming her way due to a man who had escaped from prison. The comments even used the “F” word (though he spelled it out) on this site which was inappropriate language for this wholesome site. How disappointing it was to me & to the lady his comments were directed toward. He simply caused more distress for her as she was already fearing that an uncomfortable event could take place in her own home that very night! Fortunately, our law enforcement officers did a great job apprehending the suspect before he had a chance to reach her. She had simply asked her neighbors to kindly look out for anyone suspicious near her home. Isn’t that exactly what this site is all about - Neighbors helping & being good neighbors?

    I have lived here in Montclair for almost 25 years; and since Nextdoor has been available, it is beneficial to read about happenings I might not have been ptivy to; like all of the problems wotg the Oakland Fire Dept this year—- OFD is more stringent this year than they were after the great fire of 1991 of which I was here—-This is only the second time in all that time I have been cited; and years ago one did not get fined on reinspection if one got cited; what woukd happed is that a crew would come in and bring your property compliant and OFD would bill u; also OPD would post a letter on your door if u were compliant or not ; now one has to go online or now u get a letter in the mail with no phone number to call and get an explabation: how unethical is that—- Also, I have seen properties in my neighborhood that are not compliant and the work is never done and they are still not in compliance in October—-I say favorites are being played—- Tree branches have to be cut to at leadt 10 feet off the ground; no bushes next to trees so as to stop the ladder effect for fires—-
  • Options on the app Apr 23, 2021

    By ilivemyhome
    I love this app for so many reasons. I like knowing about car break ins, and things to be aware of for safety of my children at specific times in the day when people mention strange people in the neighborhood. I love responses I get about experienced neighbors have had with specific out patient care like doctors, dentists, and other providers in the area. This app is great for new comers and very welcoming. We learn about good restaurants, outdoor activities, and good vendors etc. The reason I gave this a low rating is because I would live the option to hide specific posts about animals on the lose, or families looking for their animals, and everyone letting each other know when their animals came home or when/where they were located. There have been SO many posts that I wish that there could be a separate option within this app to view the “animals on the loose” posts. It would streamline pertinent information for those individuals who are looking for their animals, and if one was wandering ppl can post in this specific area and allow non-animal owners, or those of us who aren’t seeing lost animals, to streamline the information on the page.

    Does what it's needs to do. There are loads of annoying ads, but the people (users) can make it or break it and unfortunately the most people use this app to complain about everything they can think of and by doing so render the app not user-friendly (you will find yourself plowing through the constant flow of complaints or comment)

    I have used Nextdoor in two separate neighborhoods in two different parts of the state. With anything there are people on here that just want to complain and be negative, but for the most part it is great to get referrals for all kinds of services like pet care to a handyman. It's nice to be around communities where people that care about their neighbors.

    I really like this idea and it seems like the developers put a lot of effort into building out a lot of different functionality. BUT that doesn't matter because the insane amount of ads essentially makes the app unusable. I understand the need for ads, and I'm supportive of them being there (although I do think a premium ad-free version should be an option) but it's literally every other post. LITERALLY! I get it, money supports the business and all that, but be reasonable.

    Only had this app for a month or so, Bit strange to navigate at 1st but sort of got in now, Stopped using it as much now and hardly use it now as it's just like facebook, full of moaning people near you and more adverts than you need and Just getting more and more commercial like facebook.not about neighbours just another platform to bombard you with adverts. I expect I'll be uninstalling it soon.

    Love what I can find & the communication with the community & you'll always find a good laugh somewhere. But I've had to stop typing on a comment a few times so when I get back to it, of course the phone went to sleep so you open it up & it's gone 😲!!! And you can't find an easy (like the upper right corner) options bottens to find drafts, which is where it should go. Any other sites I've used, when I open the phone again, it goes right back to the last thing I was in the middle of.PLEASE fix😭
  • The good, the glitchy, and the bad customer care Apr 19, 2019

    By Snazzy12
    This app is fine. It’s great for selling because it’s way safer than CL, but it’s really no different than any other social network. Everyone with their inputs and soapboxes is still here. That’s fine though, who cares. What burgers me about this app is that it is extremely glitchy and their policies make no sense. Every message I receive renders a double notification bubble, you can’t change pics out in your ‘for sale’ listings, even though there is a button to click to change them. You can sit there clicking “remove photo” until the second coming ... It ain’t coming down. So then you have to delete the entire posting altogether and repost it. When you have 15-20 postings, this becomes an issue. I’ve now moved exactly 1.5 miles down the road, which means (apparently to these guys) MARS, and they take the liberty of deleting my items. Not put their ability to be sold on hold, not muting the post, not even archiving, but simply deleting them altogether. When I contacted customer care about the issue, they said they could do nothing, as this was their policy. Hmmmm. This tells me they have a VERY lazy and/or sloppy coding team and complaisant customer care group.

    It's a nice locally focus social media platform, although hampered by a lack of widespread usage, and doesn't always respond firmly enough to the spread of disinformation. It seems to have a difficult time distinguishing between townhouse units but that could just be for me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Shows one free item and links for more, but if you click the link none of the items are free. Sends emails but if you click on the link in the email it just takes you to the app, not the post you were emailed about. Contacts for local wildlife rehab would be good: people are CONSTANTLY posting about mangy foxes.
  • I’d give it a higher review if the notifications worked properly Jun 24, 2019

    By Zelzega
    I’m still fairly new to Next Door, but right off the bat, I found it demanding and overbearing. I got bombarded with emails that I never signed up for. I had to adjust my settings to not receive any emails, then I had to sit there and unsubscribe. For push notifications, I said I only wanted Top Posts and responses to my comments or my posts, instead it sends me notifications to things I’ve reacted to, so I’m being spammed with notification requests for things I don’t want notifications for. Perhaps I’m missing something, but it seems like the settings are too basic, it makes me not want to use the app. I guess for now I’ll just turn off all notifications. There’s a pop up that says “oh you might miss out on <insert whatever>”, but I suppose missing out is better than being bombarded by unnecessary notifications. It would also be nice to prioritize categories, so that I could receive only notifications for specific categories. Perhaps some people like to buy from their neighbors, but that is considered low priority to me, so I would prefer not to see posts. Am I just missing something or does that feature not exist?
  • Disappointed Nov 13, 2019

    By Yairar
    When I first joined I joined because I assumed I would be informed in my area of new business openings in town, services needed, companies nearby, etc. My experience has been the complete opposite. The neighbors in a nearby community are very toxic and negative bickering back and forth - it’s worse than Facebook high schoolers. The neighbors take up the majority of the feed and lash at each other which I believe should be against the community guidelines, not to mention both sms messages and emails were coming in filled with these particular messages. I was looking for Nextdoor to be a helpful resource but for some reason I cannot turn that particular part off. I unfortunately live too close to that neighborhood and it continues to pop up so I have decided to sign off the app, unsubscribe all, and delete it completely. I would love the option to be able to block that community so I can get back and enjoy the app the right way. It’s really a shame. This is a great app for families in need of many things that other neighbors provide. I can only hope that maybe I am using the app wrong and don’t know how to turn off that part. Thanks
  • Users Spreading of Opinions Sprinkled with Misinformation and Flat Out Lies Sep 25, 2021

    By nordalieh
    I wish Nextdoor would fix this: users seem to be allowed to force their opinion of how others should use the platform and misquote or lie about the community guidelines. I have muted users who attempt hostility like this by using the “mute” feature but the muted users can still see my posts. I don’t want them to see my posts. They are not healthy people and I would really prefer the mute feature behave more like a block. I have seen an unprecedented number of authoritarian types attempting to control how others use your platform and ethically there is a problem with that. I believe we should follow your rules not individual rules made up by local bullies. If there was a way to stop this and have Nextdoor intervene when terms and conditions or community guidelines are misquoted by users then user engagement and traffic might go up and it would definitely create a more harmonious experience. Maybe an additional reporting option for misquoting your terms? I have essentially been bullied for standing up for others even though I correctly quoted your terms and conditions, community guidelines. What can be done to resolve this issue? I am 100% certain I am not the only one. Otherwise, I love this platform and would love to continue using it.
  • Your satisfaction will depend on your expectations Aug 19, 2018

    By The Pragmatic Corvid
    I’ve been a Nextdoor user for several years. I’ve found it to be an excellent place to post things I have for sale (as long as they’re not vegetables from my garden, eggs from my chickens, quilts I’ve made, etc.). My neighbors have also kept me informed about various criminal activities in the area, events that might disrupt my commute, contractors both good and questionable, and opening dates for new businesses. On the other hand, discussions about serious and meaningful topics are often flagged for removal, even if the discussion is lively and respectful. Nextdoor policies also prohibit neighbors posting services they offer (babysitting, dog walking, house-sitting, etc.) unless the person creates a business page (a bureaucratic tangle few individuals are willing to navigate). Finally, it’s entirely too easy to flag someone’s post without first contacting them to explain the problem. So, if all you’re looking for is an online forum to learn about which roofers are dependable or get rid of that old furniture cluttering up your garage, you’ll be happy with Nextdoor. If you’re thinking you’ll have a place to discuss the positions of your local elected representative or the merits of proposed legislation, or let everyone nearby know about your side business, you’ll likely be disappointed.

    Don't know what is going on with the developers of this app, but the last few updates have started to absolutely murder my battery life on the S10e. 4 minutes the app was open yet 47 minutes of background usage and it ate 11% of my battery. That's crazy. Fix it or I will have to delete it just to get through the day.

    By M. Blair
    Not happy with the random order of posts and duplicates. I can notice an interesting post when I first open the app, then "poof" it's gone and unable to find it despite extensive scrolling past ads and duplicate posts. Been this way for several months. Settings do nothing to help.
  • These guys have no clue how to write a decent app Oct 18, 2021

    By Phoenix2000
    They’ve changed it so you can only see the latest few of your saved items, anything past the few they show is now completely inaccessible. The new app design is awful, it takes a bunch more taps and scrolling to do what used to just be a couple taps. I primarily use this for the stuff for sale, and they’ve completely messed it up, tons more painful to use and everything is much harder to use! The app is very spammy, because you don’t have anyway to exclude topics you aren’t interested in, only to “follow” to see everything. For example, it seems like half the posts are about pets, which I have no interest in, but also no way to disable. There's no way to disable notifications for just one thread, so any thing you ever do or participate in, you'll get harassed and inundated with a barrage of notifications for any active conversation. The only other alternative you have is to never participate in any thread to avoid the barrage of notifications. Yeah, that's an incredibly "smart" way to build a social-type app. Not! And even though the app supposedly has notifications settings, it seems to ignore them because I keep getting notifications for types of things I’ve clearly disabled. Because of this I have to keep notifications for the WHOLE app turned off, which means I don't see important stuff going on, which really makes the app pretty useless to me.
  • No real privacy Mar 7, 2020

    By ManadaBanana
    You have no ability to choose not to display your full name. They prohibit anything other than your complete name. You have virtually no privacy at that point their support states it’s because it’s how you introduce yourself to complete strangers. But, I choose what information I give to complete strangers up and including if I am going to share my last name. I find it disgusting that they force it to be shown on the site not allowing the user to decide how much information of theirs is displayed. You can run the site and do a verification process while still allowing people personal display preferences. It’s disgusting and sorry but it’s perfect breeding ground for killers, serial killers, rapist and other. People get your name and your town and if they read enough of your comments I am sure they can use it for a hunting ground so sorry that I think the practice of not allowing someone privacy is disgusting. I thought the app would be great but it is a little to fascist to me. Until they allow some privacy measures for their users I won’t be utilizing this or any program of the like. I don’t introduce my entire name and area I live in to complete strangers especially not online. Not even my Facebook displays all identifying markers for people. So sorry I think this app needs to remember that there are sick people out there and they are helping not hindering those sickos.

    Will update review once issues are resolved. I love the idea of this app especially since I own and operate a small business. My issues with this app are as follows 1.) Pictures don't load correctly or take forever to load for business pages. 2.) When running ads, I cannot upload a picture of my services to run with that ad. When I click on "add picture" it doesn't load or take me to the screen to add it. 3.) Business page Verification doesn't allow for uploading pictures currently either.

    10/5: UPDATE SLOW/BUGGY. Report feature not working & poorly designed. Good concept, poor execution! Doesn't show in my installed apps? Needs help w/member (advertising) business pages. Too much user spam & no tools/unclear system for leads. Depends on your neighborhood & surrounding neighborhoods you keep in your feed & the leads & community leaders. They will have a fine dance to allow free speech & yet keep things civil. This will be easier/harder depending on the neighborhoods in the feed.

    I useto look at this app almost daily but it no longer works. For the past 2 days, I would open the app and nothing would load. It just showed a white/gray screen as if it was loading and then I would get an error. I uninstalled the app and re-installed it to see if that would fix the issue and now I can't get logged back in. I put my password in, it sent me a code to my email to confirm my identity, and then it said my user name and PW were incorrect. Tried PW reset and keep getting an error.
  • Good intent but not beneficial to the community Apr 12, 2019

    By ohmygodjon
    I’ve had this app for over a year. While the app is useful for certain things going on in your personal community, you find there can also be a negativity by those close to you. In the year that i had the app I post only one single communication which was to find shelters near me that I could donate clothing to rather than dropping them to a Goodwill or other for profit organizations. The intent was to donate items to people in need in my community rather than give them to mass organizations that in turn use those items for profit. In less than 24 hours of me posting my single post, my entire account was suspended because I chose not to disclose my last name. I believe that info was not relevant to my intent to benefit my community however, someone within my community complained that my last name was not posted & Nexdoor chose to delete my account based of that complaint. I’ve read multiple posts over the past year about petty things such as how to get rid of the homeless or how annoying cyclist are but I find myself suspended for not providing my personal information which was only noticed from a post meant to help my community. This app supports those that only have negative complaints about the communities it serves but does not support those actively trying to help those in need within those communities.

    DUMPED. I said: "If I have to reset my news preferences once more, I'm dumping this app." Best is to read chronologically, not Top Posts. 😠 The 'so-called' "Top Posts", scenario, it makes it competitive and definitely not best! My preference is for latest first. Why does "Recent Activity" have to be limited to 60 days then needs to be reset? Once you make your choice you should have the freedom to stay with it or change when you want to. More dictatorship from tech!
  • Poorly monitored/managed application for neighbors that truly care about their neighborhoods Oct 8, 2018

    By donthidethetruth
    First off they allow ads for puppies and kittens To be given away for free. It’s a known fact that this encourages those looking for bait for training their fighting dogs and good for their large snakes to pick up these animals. Applications that care about the welfare of animals do not allow ads that list them as free for this simple fact. Secondly the application is full of ads for all kinds of items pasted in between the posts. Thirdly I wrote a post asking my neighbors if they knew when google fiber was going to be installed in my neighborhood as their contractors had put up “no parking “ signs in front of all our homes two weeks ago but no one had started working. I stated in my post that I was asking because I had contractors coming to work on my home that would have to park in front of my home and that I had called the construction hotline provided to us but they did not know when the work would start or who was going to be doing the work so I couldn’t even try calling the contractor to ask. Next door sent me an email an hour after I posted this stating they removed my post because it was “soapbox “. Not sure how that is determined but definitely not an app that is interested in neighbors gathering and sharing information that is pertaining to them.
  • WOMEN BEWARE: ZERO PERSONAL SAFETY Oct 14, 2020

    By rae98748695873
    I hate writing something so inflammatory, but this is pretty important. Because of the design of this app, you are: a) not able to block anyone b) automatically and permanently linked to the person who invited you c) unable to remove this person as connected to your account d) will always see their picture on your home page. I’m guessing they also get a notification when you join/re-join. When I brought this up to them their response you can “mute” them and they won’t see your content unless you are in the same neighborhood. So if there is a person who makes you feel unsafe in your neighborhood - you cannot block them. If there is someone who makes you feel unsafe and knows which neighborhood you are in - they can change their address to one in your neighborhood to gain access to your feed. I’m also not sure how much of my personal info they have access to (can they see which neighborhood I’m in? What street? What state? My picture?). This is so far beyond unacceptable in 2020. Blocking someone on a social media app is simple feature and should be part of the first round of requirements in the first implementation. I’m already talking to the product team on this, but I think others should know that until this is implemented - your personal safety is not being taken seriously by this app.
  • Not what I’d expect from nextdoor!! Sep 3, 2020

    By RosaEst1988
    So I have been a member or user for quite some time and I’ve posted multiple different things to sell from new to used never have I been restricted from signing in until now?? All because this woman who I’ve never met and doesn’t know a dam thing about me send me the most rude,judge mental, racist message but here I am the one paying the price for her actions which is why I rated this app a one star. Until the situation is properly taken care of and she is warned to stop bullying other member's on the app then I will change my rating but why am I restricted from signing in? I have always followed the rules and posted as according to the rules but because one woman bad mouths me and assumes based on no literal evidence that I am selling stolen goods. I’ve posted in general if I ever needed advice or help finding a local mechanic I’ve never bullied, never bad mouthed never broken the rules so why am I being restricted ?? Have you even consider looking into her part because I have reported her and have proof of the messages screen shot to my photos that I will be more than happy to show you (NextDoor) treat everyone equally nextdoor and I shouldn’t be assumed anything based on my profile pic or the color of my skin or do I look poor like I can’t afford the items I’m selling so the next bully has the right to assume? No not fair at all.
