    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.

    1. The free social network for your neighborhood! Used by over 175,000 neighborhoods nationwide to help bring communities together
    2. Safe and secure! Nextdoor is 100% private, with all neighbors verified by real name and address before being permitted to join
    3. Organize a neighborhood watch, find a babysitter or dog walker, find free stuff or trade goods - it's a social network for you to use any way you want

  • 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.

    Great and wonderful app to get things for free that are in great condition from what I've seen and my experience. The people on this app are so kind and nice... Idk how to explain it but the vibe and atmosphere I get while in the app is different then any other buy/sale or giveaway free app, in a good way!! Lol Highly recommended & a must have in my book!!

    The app has potential so I hope some of the hiccups can be fixed! I'm trying to update my profile and where it allows you to select things you're interested in, I'm unable to open the 'more' section. Nor will it load my family information once I've added them, I'll click continue and then get a network error but I assure you my internet connection is fine. Thank you for creating a spot for local people to get to know one another!

    This app can be helpful and amusing. It's great for help finding contractors, local happenings. It's amusing when you read the neighborly news about stupid things that just make you shake your head. Example: a stranger came and trimmed my hedges and shook out my front door mat. I don't know why. I didn't ask. I thought it better to warn my neighbors that there may be an escapee from the mental hospital down the road. Because who, but a crazy person, would do free unwanted work like that? Get app

    While I really enjoy Nextdoor, it REALLY needs a dark mode. It is so difficult for me to scroll or post on it at night. I will bump it up to 5 Stars when dark mode is added. Also, this app is loaded with features to help communicate with people who live near you, and to help each other out. I love it!
  • 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.
  • 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.

    I love it the ability to post online when something happens in the neighborhood. This helps to inform others of what is happening. Such as fires power outages missing and found animals. I like the idea of posting for help from neighbors such as yard work or store pick up.

    Starting to hate this app. Now it will not let me log in. When i login, it loads showing my map to neighborhood then goes right back to login. Im done with the app. Wjile after checking tje dates of some of these reviews, I have noticed that none of them have responses feom the team showing any support. Definitely deletimg the app. Do Not download. Waste of time and developers or only out to make money off the ads.
  • If your into fighting with your neighbors this is the app to get Mar 25, 2021

    By LaAkita
    I signed on and used this app believing it was an app to help neighbors. It ended up with political post and neighbors being not so neighborly. When elections are coming up it can be useful but when it’s fighting over Trump and Biden, being ugly over drug prices, Church and state, my body etc. amongst other hot issues with your fellow community it can lead to unhappy neighbors. In a small town we all see each other at a local grocery store and we all were kind to one another because we didn’t care about all of the politics of others but cared as a neighbor. Now we know who hates who and the looks at the store are unforgiving. If you want a local Facebook or Twitter to destroy and fight with your neighbors then this is the app to do it. I deleted the app as I would rather go back to helping my neighbors the old way. Lost dog ask people, someone needs help.. find out from my kind neighbor by word of mouth. It was a great idea that turned really quick. We need an app that is for neighbors and any election post need to be limited to the election you will be voting on not past elections of who won and how bad xx vs xx is. The monitors or leads as they call them just turn a blind eye even when you report it because it isn’t following the guidelines. Try something else if you truly want to stay friends with your neighbors. Very bad 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.
  • 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.

    Warning: I am sure this app is well-intended but no less than 24hrs after I signed up, I am getting RELENTLESS spam calls. Maybe coincidence. Also, if you decide to fully delete your account, it can only be done by contacting their support. I did that and we will see how that goes.
  • 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.

    This seemed like it could be a cool app, one that focused more on local connection and such. Sadly, it seems they just want to be the next Facebook. The same views, ads, and ultimately very rude people exist on Nextdoor. I deleted Facebook and all my other social media accounts for a reason. Nextdoor has some nice ideas, but it isn't worth coming back to social media for. Get off your phone and go meet your neighbors in real life! 😀
  • Their information is not up to date Oct 31, 2019

    By Noneofyourbiznes
    I received an email stating my account with Next door was suspended, when I emailed back and inquired why, they state I have a sex offender living with me and they sent me his file. First of all me my husband and daughter lived in Cloverleaf forest which is a campgrounds so everyone in there uses 910 N Broad Street, however everyone has different lot numbers. I don’t and never did have a sex offender living with us. So now it tells me in an email to contact the local sex registry and explain to them and they can do the proper paperwork to clear the household. I called them and they don’t do any paperwork for this. Ok there is no other way to contact next door to clear this up. Furthermore, I moved from 910 N Broad Street over a year ago and I live on the East Coast of Florida. I had next door app over in Cloverleaf when I lived there, so the community can keep each other informed of what is going on in the neighborhood. So when I moved and I got a new phone I have not used the app in quite some some almost a year. But they suspend me and any household accounts related to that old address!!! Not sure what to do next since their local sex registry can’t help me. I don’t even know the guy in the file that next door sent to me. Any suggestions would be great and helpful I sure don’t need this crap following me my family and family name.
  • 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.

  • 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...!

    This is a good way to keep informed about local news, concerns etc. People ask for help, or list free items or items for sale, or make recommendations, etc. Sometimes comments are clever and humorous. Once in a while they're mean spirited, but overall it's a winner, especially if you can just ignore the rare mean comment.
  • 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!
  • 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?

    The app has potential so I hope some of the hiccups can be fixed! I'm trying to update my profile and where it allows you to select things you're interested in, I'm unable to open the 'more' section. Nor will it load my family information once I've added them, I'll click continue and then get a network error but I assure you my internet connection is fine. Thank you for creating a spot for local people to get to know one another!

    While I really enjoy Nextdoor, it REALLY needs a dark mode. It is so difficult for me to scroll or post on it at night. I will bump it up to 5 Stars when dark mode is added. Also, this app is loaded with features to help communicate with people who live near you, and to help each other out. I love it!
  • 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.
  • Great App but some bugs lately Sep 27, 2018

    By DreamerDawn
    I'm a Lead for Nextdoor and yesterday while trying to report a post, which is part of my job as a Lead, it kept diverting me out of the app to the internet page instead of the next step in the app. I wasn't the only Lead this was happening to. The internet page didn't have a submit button so I had to go back to the app and it was an endless cycle back and forth between the app and the internet page. When trying to report the problem, I found that there's no "Contact Us" in the app which I find quite inconvenient if you're having a problem. I think the developers should put a Contact Us link at the bottom of the Help menu so that Leads who need to do their jobs can get help immediately without the hassle of searching for a way to report a problem. Finally after searching through the Help via the website, I was able to find a way to report the problem. Other than this complication, I find the app very useful and easy to use. I wish more of the Leads Tools, that are on the mobile site were in the app too.
  • It's ok Mar 30, 2020

    By Shortcake 143
    The app is a good way to connect with neighbors in a new place that you moved to. For me I loved it a few years back. I moved to new state far from where I grew up so I needed the connection. During this pandemic my my my the crazies came out and spread so much misinformation and hate. So many people on there making false statements making others want to correct them like me. Then they bully you. I had to defend myself on there. I felt like it was a second Facebook. I quickly deactivated my account then thought no I need the connection living in a rural area. So I went back on with a new profile picture new name. Wish I could take my street name off. I made it as private as I could get and didn't add any information on there. Some is forced like street name. Someone needs to do something about the bullying on there and panic. It's unnecessary and dangerous . For now I'm just using to be informed I'm no longer interacting with anyone on there unless I ultimately have to. It won't be to defend myself. I will report bullying, panic and negative behaviors .
  • What I love about Next Door & some suggestions. Dec 12, 2018

    By VFV41
    I love having access to so much local news. I often find places I’d like to go, see and learn about traffic jams, crime, missing and found pets etc. I have at this point only 2 suggestions. The For Sale keeps and repeats items for many months and each time a price goes down, the earlier listing & prices are still there. The other suggestion is about a volunteer group that I like a lot. It is a dog rescue and they find homes for dogs every week. One very positive place for them to get is on Next Door, I found them here because of the dogs they were showing. Apparently someone cuts their notices off saying they are inappropriate. They certainly are the kind of information I would like to see. Everyone at Rufus Rescue is a volunteer, they work very hard, the reward is a positive one, finding a home from some neglected, abused or lost dogs. On the other hand, it’s costs (has, neutering, veterinarian fees, food, supplies ......) are enormous. They recoup some of the veterinarian fees etc., through donations and ask a small fee to adopt- doesn’t cover a fraction of what they need to spend. They rely on donations from good hearted folks and just eat some personal expenses individually. I repeat, they are all volunteers. This is a group which should be allowed on Next Door each time, or at the very least, the person who blocks them should be identified and explain why they are blocking this group. Thank you, Virginia
  • Unexpected Side Effect Apr 10, 2018

    By @loganxfarmer
    This app itself is a great concept, and is executed well. Neighbors are able to community quickly and effectively in a way that is not possible on other social networking apps. I have no complaints with the app or the function of the app itself, all works well and is easy to navigate. My only complaint (which is not at the fault of any of the developing team or app creators) is just that this app will really REALLY open your eyes as to who you live next door to. I’ve found that people from my neighborhood and people from my whole town actually, are terribly racist. Once again, not anything negative on the app itself, it’s just that this social network DOES give some people a platform to speak openly when they really shouldn’t be given that platform. Some of my neighbors post what they think to be funny jokes but what are really racist or homophobic slander or prejudice. This comes, I’m assuming, mostly becuase I live in a very conservative area in Texas. Great app, hate my neighbors!
  • Not as great as it was Dec 15, 2017

    By Storydrum
    NextDoor is is fabulous, because it connects neighbors to each other. Ours is great because the city is also active on the network, and watches the hot topics. I've had some minor issues with the app, but overall, it's good! Update: Recent complaints are that there seem to a contingent of angry people who want to turn everything into negative political yelling. It's sad that even a neighborhood site has gotten wrapped up in the current nastiness. I also disagree with the management of Nextdoor about not allowing our city reps to answer questions. It's much worse to allow conjecture, gossip, and misinformation, than to just let the city representatives answer questions. Finally, what the heck did you do with Recommendations? They no longer show up as an option! I had to fiddle with it to find a single section! You push us to recommend businesses, then you hide them. I agree with other reviews. Your updates have been terrible. Talk to users! Not programmers!
  • Fantastic App lets you meet you neighbors Nov 20, 2018

    By puppies61
    This app has been very helpful, interesting and fun. One suggestion is to have a “how to use section” be one of the first windows you open up once you have logged in...if you already have this type of page ...then my bad. I am still very new and still learning about how to use it. I have not used the section where you can communicate with others but I love it - especially your offer to send postcards for you. I am so grateful to this app for letting me connect to other people who share the same interest. We’ve already met and started a group. Now we just need to find a place to meet on a regular basis. This is where my next suggestion comes from. Create a list of public places that might be willing to allow groups to meet at their facility. Thank you for this app which lets people have an easy, safe way to communicate what is occurring in their neighborhood and meet other people.
  • Great App to get get plugged into your neighborhood Sep 24, 2017

    By rpjohanne
    I think this is a great app to communicate with your neighbors. By defining your neighborhood based on a specific geographic area - you know exactly what and where your neighborhood is. You can get and give info specific to your neighborhood - increasing a sense of unity and community amongst the neighbors you may not know or interact with otherwise. You can also plug into other neighborhoods and a a higher town or city level. Personally - i feel like I am more a part of my neighborhood now (using this app) than I have in the 15+ years living here. I am much more informed of the news and issues specific to my neighborhood and I definitely feel safer knowing that we all are watching out for each other. Like any app, the data in it is as good as the data entered into it - bad data in = bad data out. And common courtesies and "treat others as you would want to be treated" always apply.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • App getting annoying in a few ways Jul 9, 2020

    By LaineyDel
    Although I still enjoy using this app, there are two aspects that have made it incredibly frustrating. The first is that moderators/leads have way too much leeway to police the messages being posted, and removing things at will, often times without any warning or explanation. While I completely agree with the need to have people overseeing the content, too often it feels like leads are allowed to do whatever they want, including removing things that do not align with their own personal beliefs, or ideas of a business recommendation. Second, and this one is huge, why does the app keep resorting the order of things that are posted? I open the app on my phone, and the first entry is about horses (for example). I close the app, open it right back up, and now that same posting for horses is 15 entries down. At the very least users should have a choice on the way entries are sorted, because right now I’m finding postings that haven’t had a new comment added to them higher up then new postings from today. And this issue is severely impacting the user-friendliness of the app.
  • Pretty good app, but annoying to access Aug 31, 2018

    By Appreferee
    I have been on this app for a year or two now. It is good for reports of criminal activity and seems to be good for people looking for recommendations for craftsmen, etc. it is, however, very annoying to sign in and only be able to read one post before being required to sign in again ! To the point it is not worth the trouble to sign in at all. This seems to possibly being worked on, because for several days now I have been able to read a whole string of different postings on different subjects with only one sign in required. If that is to continue, Thanks! The only real annoyance for me is the many, many URGENT postings only to read that someone sees a dog or cat wandering down the street unaccompanied. This is not URGENT in the overall daily workings of life to me, but I always read the ones marked URGENT in case someone has lost a child or a grandpa with dementia has wandered from home or there is a gas leak and neighbors should evacuate, etc. if neighbors would reduce the use of urgent s when it is really not a life or death matter, I would consider the whole thing less of a waste of time.
  • Crashed on me twice while replying to post Mar 9, 2020

    By flowologist
    Two things: Just now—I was about finished leaving feedback to an interesting neighborhood post and the app blacked out on me and closed on its own. While the content of my reply was still fresh in my head, I reopened the app, found the post, and was finishing quickly typing in feedback and about to hit enter, when the thing blacked out and quit on me again. Why is this happening? When EDITING my For Sale ads—all the photos that are originally part of the sale ad (I was selling my car) get wiped out once finished with editing. For example, I remembered more useful detailed car description that I wanted to include in my ad after I had posted it, so went in, typed, saved, and boom, photos gone. Every time I had to delete the ad and repost new one so photos would be there. (head shaking in disbelief). This is the only app that does this behavior. When comparing it to my same for sale ad on OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace, CraigsList, all photos staying put when editing content. If other apps can make this work, it only makes common sense for Nextdoor app developer...
  • Brilliant Idea, But Poorly Executed Sep 9, 2018

    By MitchKlein
    This is one of those ideas that makes you want to kick yourself for not being the first to come up with the idea and go through the steps to bringing it to fruition! I have not been using this app for very long, but I’ve found it has been a great vehicle for getting news about what’s happening in our area, meeting new people, and has allowed me to start a small business teaching knitting to others in the area. However, I use this app either on my iPhone or iPad, and have found that on mobile devices many features aren’t available, the user interface is clumsy, and it is not able to go to landscape view, which places too much weight and torque on the charging cable when it is connected. I would wager that the majority of people use Nextdoor on their mobile devices, so I think the developers should focus their efforts on making this a more robust app for these devices. I also think that it would be helpful to have more categories for users to choose from when posting.
  • Helpful app for communities, needs modern updates Aug 5, 2019

    By ChemTunes
    Wish our community had this app when we lost our cat 6 years ago. We probably would still have her today, based on all the success stories for lost and found pets. If only people would update the titles with “Found” or “Sold” or “Taken”...followers would not have to read through the entire history to get an update (more on that below). It’s also a good app for posting free or wanted items, but not as good for selling items. It seems other social apps marketplaces are further reaching and also free, so more effective and convenient to communicate. My main complaint is with all the scrolling one must do to see NextDoor updates to a post you follow (by liking or commenting). More modern apps give you either compressed views, with most recent replies either first or visible. This one can get hundreds of replies per post and you have to scroll through the entire history, tedious if you’ve been following it for its entirety.

  • Great app with a few issues Oct 31, 2018

    By InfuriatedOrange
    Great potential for this app, I love being connected to my neighborhood. I dislike that ‘thanking’ a post automatically subscribes me to the notifications. I know I can turn them off but it’s obnoxious to do every time. I also dislike that a post I made four months ago resurfaced... the feed just seems a little buggy. On a side note, I find it offensive I can put the breed in for 3 of my 4 well behaved and healthy, dogs, but not my Pitbull. Pitbulls are absolutely great family pets, and one of the most common breeds, and yet ‘Pitbulls’, ‘American Pitbull Terriers’, or ‘pit-mix’ are not available in the breeds. Obviously this is because of the stigma surrounding the misunderstood breed. I find it to be bigoted, especially because my Pitbull is the sweetest, most friendly of my four amazing family dogs. To compromise, I changed her name to Penny the Pitbull (other) while the other dogs have their name and proper breed selected. Please fix this, and stop egging on the anti Pitbull agenda.
  • 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.

    This seemed like it could be a cool app, one that focused more on local connection and such. Sadly, it seems they just want to be the next Facebook. The same views, ads, and ultimately very rude people exist on Nextdoor. I deleted Facebook and all my other social media accounts for a reason. Nextdoor has some nice ideas, but it isn't worth coming back to social media for. Get off your phone and go meet your neighbors in real life! 😀

    Mixed reviews so thought I'd give it a go. No sign up problems (maybe because I was invited) but I can't see any practical use for the app, other than exchanging recommendations of trades. As others have said, news feed is just a deluge of information from any point in time, and the search function is hopeless (searched by my road name and best match was 'Pest Control'). Not quite as local as I expected, and very messy to navigate. Uninstalling after 30 mins - two stars.

    By Pavilion Sahota
    Your experience with this app will be entirely dependent on who your neighbors are. I got this app because my neighborhood started using it and it seemed like a cool idea. However, my feed on this app is nothing but people trying to: sell stuff, beg for free stuff, advertise things no one cares about, ask for basic IT support, report very obvious phishing scams, and complain about noise. It's basically Facebook but all your friends are those old relatives that share minion memes and complain.
  • Apr 21, 2021

    By Carl Blunt
    Useful app, unfortunately the threads are unorganized and the search feature is almost useless. Searching something like "water bill" (even with quotes) will anything that mentions water or anyone named Bill. You can't limit the search to thread titles, so you also often end up with dozens of hits that all basically lead to the same place. Finding something you read even 10 minutes ago can be a cumbersome ordeal.
  • I wish it was better. Jul 28, 2020

    By beth19283883938
    While this app is extremely useful for living in a rural community like I do, it’s not a very good app. It’s hard to keep my dashboard preferences intact. To be kept up to date with local emergencies, I need it to be in chronological order. It will be in order chronologically for a short time, but generally when I refresh the app I get random posts each time, including some that are weeks old with barely any activity. On top of that, as others have said, some posts will be removed even though conversation remained civil and on topic. These post and comment removals are seemingly random? On the other hand, when a neighbor posts blatant and dangerous misinformation about covid-19, the post will stay up despite it being reported under the specific category of Covid-19 misinformation. Most Facebook groups are run better than this. I want this app to work properly so bad. It’s glitchy, and notifications are weird, no matter what you set your preferences to. This app is very useful and important to have in a community like mine, where important information on wildfires and other emergencies are shared. It has potential. But definitely has some extremely annoying shortfalls.
  • Had to downgrade my rating Jun 10, 2018

    By Biggie46789432
    Edited June 2018: Now that NextDoor has exploded in popularity, the quality has gone way down. The “Leads” need to be more like moderators were in the days of internet message boards. In those days, the moderators were the ones to be on the lookout for posts that violated the rules of the board. NextDoor, instead, chooses to go the route if requiring neighbors to snitch on neighbors when they’re violating rules of the website/app. Since no one wants to be that guy, NextDoor is now riddled with self-promotion posts. Ruins the entire experience for me. Combine that with all the chicken-little “suspicious van” posts that never spell out what makes it “suspicious” and the “OMG I saw a coyote we’re all going to die!!!” posts that NextDoor has no control over, and I find myself wading through a whole bunch of junk and rule-breakers just to get to a few interesting tidbits. Just no longer worth my time. ————————- Suddenly the "stop receiving immediate updates" on mail has stopped working. Although as I type this I realize it may not be the app but the website that's not getting the memo. I did go into the app to unsubscribe, hopefully that works. Still a great website and app, though.
  • The app keeps getting worse as it tries to improve May 29, 2019

    By Angelfisch
    I don’t use this app often, but when I do I’m becoming increasingly frustrated with it. I get app notifications that show up as numbers on the bell icon, but there’s been nothing new there for weeks. It appears the notifications should actually be for the inbox or even the main message board. Additionally, my feed is supposed to be restricted to my neighborhood, but I keep seeing posts from other neighborhoods. I can understand this if it’s in a category I’ve chosen to follow (although I still think the neighborhood restrictions should supersede the categories). But what is even more frustrating is I see posts from other neighborhoods from categories I don’t even follow. For example, I keep seeing posts on Gardening & Landscaping, which is a category I didn’t think I followed. Sure enough, when I view that category, my options are to “Follow” or “Invite.” I’m a Nextdoor admin for my neighborhood, and I find it a worthwhile enough resource as a supplement to our neighborhood’s Facebook group (and actually to invite new Nextdoor people to our FB page), but the latest rounds of “improvements” are making me not want to use it.
  • In the beginning Jul 24, 2018

    By RedHen
    I suppose this app was a good idea at one time but it has morphed into an unsupported mess. As others have noted, support is very bad. I was having a problem with the app on my phone. It would open up to a blank page and not populate the posts. So after signing out of app, deleting it, turning my phone off, standing on one foot, giving the side eye whilst turning everything back on it still wouldn’t work. After 20 days support wrote back something to the effect “hmm that’s weird” and that was that. Then there are the leads who are chosen willy nilly perhaps plucked from a nut tree. What do they do exactly? One of mine enjoys video taping cars in the neighborhood that they deem driving badly. They post a picture of a vehicle they are behind with license plate then publicly shame the driver. How do we know that this is true or the lead harassing a neighbor? I think the leads should NOT be a person from the neighborhood but employee of NextDoor, moderator without a bone to pick. So to say something good about the app, I helped loads of neighbors find their run away dogs and horses, sold many items and have a good idea who all the trouble makers are and stay far away from them!

  • If your into fighting with your neighbors this is the app to get Mar 25, 2021

    By LaAkita
    I signed on and used this app believing it was an app to help neighbors. It ended up with political post and neighbors being not so neighborly. When elections are coming up it can be useful but when it’s fighting over Trump and Biden, being ugly over drug prices, Church and state, my body etc. amongst other hot issues with your fellow community it can lead to unhappy neighbors. In a small town we all see each other at a local grocery store and we all were kind to one another because we didn’t care about all of the politics of others but cared as a neighbor. Now we know who hates who and the looks at the store are unforgiving. If you want a local Facebook or Twitter to destroy and fight with your neighbors then this is the app to do it. I deleted the app as I would rather go back to helping my neighbors the old way. Lost dog ask people, someone needs help.. find out from my kind neighbor by word of mouth. It was a great idea that turned really quick. We need an app that is for neighbors and any election post need to be limited to the election you will be voting on not past elections of who won and how bad xx vs xx is. The monitors or leads as they call them just turn a blind eye even when you report it because it isn’t following the guidelines. Try something else if you truly want to stay friends with your neighbors. Very bad 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.

    Warning: I am sure this app is well-intended but no less than 24hrs after I signed up, I am getting RELENTLESS spam calls. Maybe coincidence. Also, if you decide to fully delete your account, it can only be done by contacting their support. I did that and we will see how that goes.
  • 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.
  • Their information is not up to date Oct 31, 2019

    By Noneofyourbiznes
    I received an email stating my account with Next door was suspended, when I emailed back and inquired why, they state I have a sex offender living with me and they sent me his file. First of all me my husband and daughter lived in Cloverleaf forest which is a campgrounds so everyone in there uses 910 N Broad Street, however everyone has different lot numbers. I don’t and never did have a sex offender living with us. So now it tells me in an email to contact the local sex registry and explain to them and they can do the proper paperwork to clear the household. I called them and they don’t do any paperwork for this. Ok there is no other way to contact next door to clear this up. Furthermore, I moved from 910 N Broad Street over a year ago and I live on the East Coast of Florida. I had next door app over in Cloverleaf when I lived there, so the community can keep each other informed of what is going on in the neighborhood. So when I moved and I got a new phone I have not used the app in quite some some almost a year. But they suspend me and any household accounts related to that old address!!! Not sure what to do next since their local sex registry can’t help me. I don’t even know the guy in the file that next door sent to me. Any suggestions would be great and helpful I sure don’t need this crap following me my family and family name.
  • 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.

    Awful. It is IMPOSSIBLE to login or rejoin, nothing works. Unable to re-set password as the every time I click on the link it says the reset link is expired (even when brand new). So I rejoined with new email address but the app forces me to "verify" the account, which is impossible to do!!The app doesn't send the SMS to verify mobile and granting location permission does nothing at all and location doesn't get verified - and there is no help button to contact anyone and sort this out. Terrible.
  • 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.
