Could NextDoor Be The Next Big Social Network?



NextDoor could very well be the next big social networking site. Connect with neighbors you haven’t had the chance to meet up with, or old neighbors that you’ve lost touch with. NextDoor aims form tight-knit communities for people who live together.



“We believe that Nextdoor has the opportunity to be for our local life what Facebook is for our social life and what LinkedIn is for our professional life,” says Founder and CEO, Nirav Tolia.


Because of the success NextDoor has had with creating neighborhood watches, it now has partnerships with over 100 cities who can access special accounts to issue alerts from local fire and police departments.


Using NextDoor, you can create private threads and sites that only your local community can axess. From planning block parties, to finding lost pets, to alerting neighbors of crime in the area, NextDoor could be the best way to stay in touch. With a 400% growth from last year, this startup already covers 22,500 neighborhoods and is still growing strong.
