    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.

    As a sociologist, one thing that you will do is connect with people. This app will help you with connecting with the people in your neighborhood beyond the ones who live in the 2 or 3 houses around you.

    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.

  • No longer able to view app in landscape Dec 19, 2021

    By Obie the great
    One of your recent updates eliminated the ability to use the app in landscape view, only profile. I access the app on my iPad and always use landscape as it’s easier to balance the device and to read and access the features. I’m using the app less and less because of this change, hopefully you will bring back the versatility of accessing in either view. Overall it’s a good app and I enjoy it for the most part. Unfortunately there is a lot of ugliness and meanness that gets by way to often from “neighbors” as the leads evidently can’t keep up with it, reported or not. I think closer monitoring with more leads or other individuals would help minimize this. We as users can’t attempt to correct the people making any rude or mean comments as then we get reported and blocked, and users just reporting the comments and posts hasn’t eliminated those posts or comments quickly enough…if at all. If anyone blocks specific individuals then those individuals can still see those posts and continue harassing and making rude, threatening comments that we can no longer see or be aware of which isn’t right. So I don’t block anyone as I need to know how threatening they are getting…to not only me but to others as well. If people are suspended for bad behavior then the posts or comments that caused the suspension and were reported should automatically be deleted…permanently. They show back up again when someone is reinstated if not deleted.
  • Deleted my thread on Covid which was a great thread. Feb 3, 2022

    By kathkeane
    Covid is killing people and I created a thread where people could help each other. You deleted it. I have a lot to say. First the idea is great. However you took down a thread that was possibly the most useful ever. I had created a thread where any neighbor could express their opinion about Covid and report their actual experience. It worked. People were reporting if the testing was accurate. They reported which drugs or otc meds they were using. They reported what equipment they needed to get through the sickness. They reported what their doctor said and what happened at the e r when they went. They reported on relatives who had died. We had many nurses chime in. IT WAS USEFUL. You deleted it and I never was clear why. You said it might discourage people from getting vaxed. Adults should have every piece of info available to make up their own mind. I recreated this thread without the comments and it was much less useful. I was actually crushed that you chose to take something away. Did you know doctors offer nothing? Did you know pharmacists have no drugs to offer? Did you know my entire family cheated death with 30 days or more of Covid? Do you know my daughter died from an immunization reaction? As did my friends daughter? It was a great and unique Covid thread that was a wonderful resource snd you destroyed it. Shame on you.
  • Scrolling hitches Apr 12, 2022

    By ObviousDWest
    Update: I uninstalled the app (which said it would delete its data), restarted my phone, then reinstalled it. The first couple of times I ran the app, scrolling was smooth again. What was quite weird is: I didn’t have to log into NextDoor again. So it kept some of my data, somewhere (key store?). It did ask for permission to send notifications again. Anyway, let’s see if the scrolling problem builds up again. April ‘22 The scrolling hitches are still there. If you keep the panel moving slightly, even by dragging up and down, it will scroll smoothly through pages and pages of content. But the moment the panel stops completely, you cannot scroll at all for 3-5 seconds. Not can you hit buttons. The app doesn’t heat up the phone, so it’s not stuck in a loop. It just goes idle, and forgets to poll for input. Obviously, QA would have noticed this. So it must be an issue w iPhone 8, only. Maybe a bad assumption about equal update rates everywhere? I’m on the latest OS. March ‘22: The last few versions have a performance bug where scrolling hitches, and buttons are unresponsive for a moment. No other apps on my iphone8 are doing that. I love the service and seeing local posts. Also, it would be nice as an admin of a group to be able pin/unpin posts in the app. Right now, you can only do that on the web.
  • What kind of app is this? Feb 21, 2022

    By Handlebars1959
    Imagine for a minute or two, you have moved into a new neighbourhood and you don’t know anyone including any of your neighbors nearby. You’re right 100% and it’s scary to attempt it. I agree 100%. Your location found at the top will tell other whereabouts you live, not your exact address. Thank Goodness for that! In this app you will find people from all walks of life including those who use chose words (nasty words) and they will get corrected by other people who use this app. Complainers will get corrected too. If you post something and it doesn’t sound right to you, let us know and we will be glad to help out. Same goes for what kind of home service, electrical services, roof repair, etc’s to go to find the right person to help you out. You can think of this app as the yellow pages of your telephone book and never receiving a paper cut. So go ahead and use the services to the fullest and enjoy using this app and who knows you might even run into an old friend from your elementary school years like I have. Enjoy!

    Great for connecting, but a bit clunky interface. If I save an item for sale, and it is sold, it should not keep showing up in my 'saved' especially after I've refreshed the page and gone into the listing. It makes it very confusing to know what is really available.
  • Way too many updates Feb 18, 2022

    By Mike W
    This is 11 updates in about a month. You should not be fixing this many bugs in production software, and I certainly don’t see that many improvements wing made. Version history should be an honest change log, not just the same canned text every time. My internet service is capped and for me to consume over 1Gb per month just for updates to one app is totally unacceptable. Previous review: This is my weekly review of what’s new in this update. Oh, never mind. Can’t find anything mentioned. So I won’t waste time updating the app. This is a revision of my original review. The version history for this app’s last 25 revisions is the exact same text. If you are adding features, then let us know what they are. If you are fixing bugs, then you need to do more internal testing before releasing the change to the public. I need to know what is changing before wasting my time and internet bandwidth on non-applicable updates. This app is useful to me and works well. However, I am annoyed by numerous apps that do a weekly update. Please do more internal testing so you don’t have to update all the time. I really don’t see much in improvements from week to week. I have a slow internet connection, so dealing with 50 apps that need updating all the time is a major pain.

    I do not like the recent updates to the market place. When scrolling threw the ads now it just stops and takes you back the the top. It seemed to have cleared the recent ads the were put on there. It worked great before and was one of my favorite apps. Don't fix something that isn't broke just so you can say you made changes.

    I'm one of the board members in my neighborhood, so having this tool handy at all times is very helpful. However, for the past while (couple of months?) I've noticed a persistent notification that says "Updates you may have missed". If I clear it by swiping it away, it just comes back again a few minutes later. If I tap it, it just opens the Nextdoor app, and doesn't seem to clear whatever flag causes it, so it just comes back anyway even if I have tapped it.

    By Cassio Miranda
    Something happened with this app in the last six months. I think it needs a serious update and refresh. I am seeing some bugs such as notification icon for messages, always on. No way to archive messages to turn that notification off. Everytime I open the app, it now lands me to an older post. Not to the current topic of the neighborhood. Something happened.
  • Mar 2, 2022

    By vibradiant
    Have an Android 9 device & an Android 11 phone, & the first got a buggy lag in typing & eventually crashing the app (which I figured was due to the older device), but now the same is starting to happen with the updated Android OS, there are no updates, & I finally stopped even trying to contribute due to the hassle. Other than that, ND is a helpful place for neighbors to discuss issues, find lost pets, etc, but pls fix the technical glitches.
  • May 8, 2022

    By Alan Daniel
    Yeah, after months of a persistent "updates you may have missed" notification, I finally go and look through the notification settings. When I see a list that long and NOWHERE see anything mentioning this persistent notification, I know they have no interest in giving people the ability to actually scale down notifications. It's absurd. Also the posts are largely either toxic or irrelevant info from miles away. The concept of the service is cool, but boy this has gone downhill over the years.
  • May 11, 2022

    By Veronica H.
    Honestly I used to love this app. It was so easy to see what was going on in just my neighborhood. Unfortunately, It is so overly complicated, difficult to navigate, and dificult find things I'm looking for now, that it is a headache just to look at it. Not to mention the feed has an overflow of ads. Before anyone asks, im usually pretty good with apps but this just made my eyes cross.
  • May 13, 2022

    By Chris Kemly
    They make it so difficult to turn off notifications. There are so many different menus where you have to dig into turn off notifications for the individual part of the app. Even if you dig through the settings you'll probably still get notifications. It's pretty infuriating.
  • Apr 25, 2022

    By Torivia Gonzales
    Annoying and frustrating. Literally downloaded it and not even 10 mins on it and it's having the hardest time finding my location. I can't do anything until it gets verified but I did the text message and also let my location on but still nothing. Then it's telling me they'll send a post card (that could take up to 10 business day) to verify and honestly dont know if this app really was worth all this...
  • These guys have no clue how to write a decent app Nov 22, 2021

    By Phoenix2000
    They’ve “revamped” the app so now 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.

    Edit. Somehow worse at acceleratorating pace. Becoming less useful as time goes on with more ads. Can't see map of neighborhood with addresses to contact certain neighbors, turning in Facebook with garbage newsfeed instead of curated list based on my preferences. It's now just not something to use for real neighborhood stuff, and instead is becoming Facebook local edition.
  • May 2, 2022

    By Olivia S
    Unable to filter posts from most recent, feels useless when trying to find something from this week and posts from months ago are mixed in. There is an option to change your feed preferences, but not your search preferences for some strange reason. Will delete asap, it is extremely frustrating to the point of being almost unusable.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    I really want to like this app but there's so many issues with both the app and the site like the fact that no one can delete another app not even the group creator. When I used to be a feature that would allow you to print out invitations for Nextdoor with a code for your neighbors to up wish this was still an option. It also seems that although it says that there is an option to send free postcards to neighbors, the option to select neighbors to invite is no longer there.

  • 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.
  • 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...!

I've noticed a persistent notification that says "Updates you may have missed". If I clear it by swiping it away, it just comes back again a few minutes later. If I tap it, it just opens the Nextdoor app, and doesn't seem to clear whatever flag causes it, so it just comes back anyway even if I have tapped it.

    Something happened with this app in the last six months. I think it needs a serious update and refresh. I am seeing some bugs such as notification icon for messages, always on. No way to archive messages to turn that notification off. Everytime I open the app, it now lands me to an older post. Not to the current topic of the neighborhood. Something happened.

    Have an Android 9 device & an Android 11 phone, & the first got a buggy lag in typing & eventually crashing the app (which I figured was due to the older device), but now the same is starting to happen with the updated Android OS, there are no updates, & I finally stopped even trying to contribute due to the hassle. Other than that, ND is a helpful place for neighbors to discuss issues, find lost pets, etc, but pls fix the technical glitches.
  • 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.

    Yeah, after months of a persistent "updates you may have missed" notification, I finally go and look through the notification settings. When I see a list that long and NOWHERE see anything mentioning this persistent notification, I know they have no interest in giving people the ability to actually scale down notifications. It's absurd. Also the posts are largely either toxic or irrelevant info from miles away. The concept of the service is cool, but boy this has gone downhill over the years.

    Unable to filter posts from most recent, feels useless when trying to find something from this week and posts from months ago are mixed in. There is an option to change your feed preferences, but not your search preferences for some strange reason. Will delete asap, it is extremely frustrating to the point of being almost unusable.
  • 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.

    I really want to like this app but there's so many issues with both the app and the site like the fact that no one can delete another app not even the group creator. When I used to be a feature that would allow you to print out invitations for Nextdoor with a code for your neighbors to up wish this was still an option. It also seems that although it says that there is an option to send free postcards to neighbors, the option to select neighbors to invite is no longer there.

    Biggest complaint is that there doesn't appear to be a way to sort the posts. I keep seeing the same posts, some are months old. As I scroll down I see newer posts buried in the timeline. This makes the app not very useful or relevant. Also, there are more ads than actual posts from neighbors. Recently it has started crashing and has to be restarted, which is annoying. Overall it is not a user-friendly app and could stand some tweaking.

    I like the connections the app generates. However, notifications have been an issue for the 3 years I've been using the app. Never receive push notifications and email notifications are sent days or weeks after the relevant post was made. The numerous In-app notification settings are enabled and the notification permission is allowed in phone app settings.
  • 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 think this app is way too glitchy and unreliable. It always says there are new posts even when there aren't. Sometimes you'll get notifications on a post you interacted with and sometimes you won't. Occasionally you'll get notifications for posts that you have never even seen before. And there are definitely lags in the notification updates even when manually checked.

    Unfortunately, the update to the For Sale section has many issues. When scrolling, items constantly flip sides/reload in a new place and it is dizzying. Items posted 2 years ago sometimes show up as featured. Items I bookmarked stay in the "Still Interested?" section even if sold; only refreshes by clicking each item (Sorry neighbor, this item is no longer available)...Just remove it, don't make me click into every item to see if it's available. Horizontal scroll on main page not very useful.

    Not really user friendly when one has to frequently go into settings to constantly change settings back that you want to see recent posts in my area versus popular posts from other states. Yes, animal posts from other states are cute but I prefer to know what is happening in my surrounding area as a default, not just for 30 days.

    Honestly I used to love this app. It was so easy to see what was going on in just my neighborhood. Unfortunately, It is so overly complicated, difficult to navigate, and dificult find things I'm looking for now, that it is a headache just to look at it. Not to mention the feed has an overflow of ads. Before anyone asks, im usually pretty good with apps but this just made my eyes cross.

    They make it so difficult to turn off notifications. There are so many different menus where you have to dig into turn off notifications for the individual part of the app. Even if you dig through the settings you'll probably still get notifications. It's pretty infuriating.

    Annoying and frustrating. Literally downloaded it and not even 10 mins on it and it's having the hardest time finding my location. I can't do anything until it gets verified but I did the text message and also let my location on but still nothing. Then it's telling me they'll send a post card (that could take up to 10 business day) to verify and honestly dont know if this app really was worth all this...
  • These guys have no clue how to write a decent app Nov 22, 2021

    By Phoenix2000
    They’ve “revamped” the app so now 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.

    Edit. Somehow worse at acceleratorating pace. Becoming less useful as time goes on with more ads. Can't see map of neighborhood with addresses to contact certain neighbors, turning in Facebook with garbage newsfeed instead of curated list based on my preferences. It's now just not something to use for real neighborhood stuff, and instead is becoming Facebook local edition.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Toxic Sep 20, 2021

    By Pearlypeach200
    Initially subscribed after moving to a rural area for local info. and to aid in familiarizing myself I with the new area 2.6 years ago. In the beginning it was just that, with very little of the toxicity other social networking had become flooded with. I’ve recently deleted the app. I had to do the same with all other social media 6 years ago for the same reason. Mankind at its core has both compassion and immorality. Compassion, many times genuine, is also often used as a ploy to gain favor with others. This is sometimes referred to as (Virtue Signaling). Immorality on the other hand is the side people hide, more often then not. It comes to the surface in different degrees, held at bay only by what consequences a person would be forced to deal with at that moment. You see this on display most often with the personality change that takes place as soon as some people step into their car for a drive. Very often it’s shown in the different way a person interacts with people who may in some way be viewed as subservient to them. Children, The waiter at the restaurant, employees, strangers etc… Social media, including Nextdoor, having some potential good uses on another planet, has become THE place where Mankind can finally show themselves without the mask. Save yourself, save your children. Unplug….
  • 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.
