The social network Nextdoor has taken New York City by storm. Mayor Bloomberg of NYC has taken on the services of Nextdoor to get his city’s neighborhoods in synch with each other.
From now onwards the residents of New York can remain posted on the latest developments on the scene. They can also keep each other safe and secure amidst the highly volatile law and order situation of the city that never sleeps. Nextdoor is ideal for the New York environment and it sports Twitter and Tumblr on its menu too. New Yorkers will breathe easy knowing that the technology provided by Nextdoor is fulfilling their every social requirement with alacrity. A two year old enterprise, Nextdoor spans over 14,000 neighborhoods and owns at least $40 million in funds. Just last month it launched its iPhone app which says a lot about the company. Among the list of big cities it caters to can be included: San Diego, San Jose and Dallas. The ball is in the Big Apple’s court. The vibes it gives out as a result of its encounter with the site Nextdoor will determine the future.
Being among its latest users, NYC has a lot to gain and virtually nothing to lose from employing this program to better assemble the lives and activities of its decent law-abiding citizens. With each passing day, Nextdoor includes 100 new neighborhoods in its repertoire. It is a fast burgeoning site. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has played a pivotal role in introducing Nextdoor to his home turf city. As an information-relaying tool, Nextdoor has no rival.
In fact, that is one of the main reasons the Mayor’s own office has been the first place to utilize this special service. The social network will lend access to all sorts of info ranging from natural hazards to local happenings to crime prevention measures. Over 120 cities have signed up already for the valuable guidance of Nextdoor. The service is free for New Yorkers. Since NYC has its share of urban problems (all big cities have them) so this social service will be a Godsend for the daily working schedule of the city dwellers. Besides fighting the criminal and terrorist elements, this integration of people into one large network will create greater consolidation and commitment. It will generate a sense of community instead of the chaos that usually prevails in extreme urban conditions present in the dilapidated inner city milieu.
