Nextdoor Social Network Digs Deep Into Neighborhoods

Nirav Tolia, Nextdoors chief, in the Lorelei area of Menlo Park, Calif., the start-ups first test community.

Internet companies have been trying desperately for years to court people like Isaac Gonzalez to use their services.

He is 34 years old, married, a father and a well-regarded leader of his neighborhood association in Sacramento. Local government officials and business owners know who he is. When Mr. Gonzalez weighs in on local issues, his neighbors listen.

And Mr. Gonzalezs opinions and recommendations are exactly whatNextdoor, a San Francisco-based social networking start-up, believes will be the key to expanding its networks reach and opening a trove of revenue from local businesses and service providers.

Building community is really, really hard, Nirav Tolia, chief executive of Nextdoor, said in an interview. Trust is essential, and it has to be authentic.

Investors think Nextdoor is on to something. The company will announce on Wednesday that it has raised $110 million in venture capital from investors like Redpoint Ventures and Insight Venture Partners. The new investment values the three-and-a-half-year-old start-up at about $1.1 billion, putting the company among the sharply rising number of tech start-ups with 10-figure valuations.

The investors seem to believe that there is more money to be had in small neighborhood-size communities. Many Internet companies, including AOL, Google and Foursquare, have already homed in on this market, with mixed success. Mr. Tolia and Sarah Leary, the founders of Nextdoor, believe they have found the answer.

In short, it is all about community. Nextdoor has slowly built a network of more than 53,000 microcommunities across the United States, all based on local neighborhood boundaries. Nextdoor restricts communication to only those people who live close to one another; users are required to verify their identity and home address upon signing up.

Consider Nextdoor a modern, more attractive version of a community email list service or Yahoo Groups, the popular message board. Users can post neighborhood news, offer items for sale, ask for help finding lost pets or organize a block party.

Nextdoor also works with about 650local government agenciesthat can send out citywide alerts on things like utility shutdowns in specific areas, crime alerts or emergency-preparedness tips.

That network, in Nextdoors telling, creates trust between users, who will put more stock in one anothers comments and more important for the companys bottom line in recommendations for local services and businesses.

Of the five million messages exchanged each day on Nextdoor, Mr. Tolia said, the networks users send more than one million recommending services to one another. Around 80 percent of those posts are discussions about local service providers and businesses.

The goal, the company says, is to begin to extract data from those conversations to produce recommendations. People on the service could then search for things like the best local tutors, a handyman or housecleaning services.

That is where Nextdoor sees a business opportunity.

The company is still in the early days of testing how it could make money from the recommendations. It may use those recommendations to help sell ads to the companies being recommended.

Nextdoor has slowly built a network of more than 53,000 microcommunities across the United States, all based on local neighborhood boundaries. Nextdoor restricts communication to only those people who live close to one another.

But it is also experimenting with on-demand services, similar to other start-ups like Uber, the car-sharing service, or Instacart, which lets users order grocery delivery online. Nextdoor could, for example, offer users the ability to book a highly recommended plumber or tutor directly from its network, and then take a cut of the fee for the service.

The company says that this approach could even unlock an entirely new market of people who offer local services like dog walkers or babysitters but have never before advertised online.

That is different from other networks, including Facebook, which primarily makes money by showing users ads tailored to their personal profiles, or Twitter, which offers interest-based advertisements. Both networks place ads inside a persons content stream, between the myriad photos and status updates that flow through the feed.

When people use Nextdoor, theyre not looking to post a cat pic, theyre looking for services, looking to sell things, said Bill Gurley, a partner in the venture capital firm Benchmark, which is invested in Nextdoor. From an advertising standpoint, context matters.

The path to local advertising is well worn. AOLs grand experiment to break into local communities was Patch, a network of hundreds of hyper-local news sites that focused on issues specific to a small geographic area. The effort was seen as a grand failure; AOLsold Patchin 2014 after hemorrhaging more than $200 million trying to get it off the ground.

Foursquare, thesocial recommendations start-up, also sells ads to local businesses who want to attract new, digitally knowledgeable customers. Last month, aFoursquare executive saidthe company has seen triple-digit year-over-year revenue growth, though he declined to state any exact numbers. Facebook hasonly recentlystarted selling locally focused ads to small businesses.

And then there are companies like Yelp and Google, both of which offer scores of recommendations based on user searches and ratings.

Nextdoors philosophy is that a recommendation from someone in your community carries more weight than, say, a Yelp review from someone you may not know on the Internet, or an algorithmically determined Google advertisement.

And the on-demand approach is markedly different from older methods of culling dollars from local businesses, usually through traditional advertising avenues.

The power of social networks is that theyre a bottoms-up phenomenon, said David Sze, a venture capitalist at Greylock Partners and a Nextdoor board member. You provide this social utility, and users start talking about commerce and local services on their own.

Search advertising, like Googles, will continue to dominate online ad spending over the next five years, according to a report from Forrester Research, which expects digital advertising to top $103 billion over the next five years. But Shar VanBoskirk, a Forrester analyst, anticipates social ad spending to grow the fastest of all digital ad categories.

It is early days for Nextdoors business plans. The company has spent nearly all of the last three years expanding its user base, the exact numbers of which it does not disclose.

But this year, Nextdoor plans to let businesses post to its network, a first for a company that has to date allowed only its users and local governmental organizations to communicate with one another.

What is clear, however, is that Nextdoor is not in a big hurry to slap on a business model and risk upsetting its users, much like the reaction Facebook experienced when it first began to introduce advertising to the network.

How do you crack local, when so many companies before you have failed? You play the long game, and take it one step at a time, Mr. Tolia, the Nextdoor chief executive, said. It takes patience, trust and a whole lot of runway.

An article on Wednesday about Nextdoor, a social network aimed at neighborhood-size communities, using information from the company, misspelled, in some copies, the surname of the leader of a neighborhood association in Sacramento. He is Isaac Gonzalez, not Gonzales.

Nextdoor, A Social Network for Connecting With Neighbors, Reinvents Neighborhood Watch

Nextdoor is a social network for neighborhoods.

Michael Riggs had heard about a murder at a local pub just a few miles from his house in a suburb of Dallas. He immediately went to his computer to share the news.

No, he didnt post it on Facebook or tweet it. He logged into and shared details about the crime and the Dallas Police Departments contact information. His online audience: his neighbors. And not his virtual neighbors. His real-life neighbors.

I posted it so everyone would be aware, Riggs told ABC News in a phone interview. Within a few hours there were several responses to the murder post. Many were just blown away that this had happened in our neighborhood. Riggs, 53, is the lead of the Bent Tree West Nextdoor site. The small town has 818 homes; 196 are now on the towns Nextdoor community.

Bent Tree West is just an example of the growing Nextdoor social network, which announced today the newest version of the site — Nextdoor 2.0 — and that it has raised $21.6 million in its next round of funding from some of the early backers of Facebook and LinkedIn.

There is a social network for friends and family — thatsFacebook. There is a social network for business — thatsLinkedIn, Nirav Tolia, the CEO and founder of Nextdoor, told ABC News in an interview. But a big part of our social identity is where we live, and where we live isnt captured by those other social networks.

Nextdoor is strictly about connecting with the people who live around you. When you sign up, you must input your real name and address. And you must verify that you live in the neighborhood either via credit card confirmation or by having the company send you a postcard that you can then verify you received.

Tolia created Nextdoor so neighbors could connect more easily with each other, to make asking for the cup of sugar or an extra egg faster.

People have a latent desire to connect with their desires — not as friends, Tolia said. Its not Wish me happy birthday or Look at my vacation pictures. Its, I lost my dog, My roof is leaking, I need to borrow some skis.

Since its launch in 2012, more than 8,000 neighborhoods are using Nextdoor in the U.S, with 40 new neighborhoods being added each day, the company says.

The website, which is being refreshed today with a cleaner design, allows you to start threads to talk to your neighbors. There are threads on everything from ride sharing to good plumbers to reports of wild raccoons. The site also has a Craigslist-like function that allows you to list products that you are selling.

But while Tolia expected to create a network for neighbors to connect over smaller things, the site has made a bigger impact.

Weve noticed that neighbors, when they can easily connect and communicate, band together to create safer neighborhoods, Tolia said. Just as Michael Riggs did with his community, many neighbors are alerting each other about crimes or security issues.

We believe neighborhoods that use Nextdoor will lower crime rates, Tolia said. Over the last six months police departments and fire departments have been contacting Nextdoor to be integrated into the service so they can work with neighbors to create safer neighborhoods.

Police departments in Dallas, San Jose, and Orlando have started to use Nextdoors Virtual Neighborhood Watch to communicate with homeowners. Denver and San Francisco will begin to use the service soon.

In Dallas, the company says 243 neighborhoods are using Nextdoor, the police have trained 300 neighbor police officers and they have mapped local police stations to the Nextdoor communities. The departments even post surveillance videos.

Tolia said that once a week the Silicon Valley-based company hears about a crime being stopped because of communication that went on over the service. Police departments and the community lead can inform neighbors of high-priority alerts or news via text message.

But while Nextdoor has begun to fight crime, its hard not to imagine the crimes that could be started by users of the site. The site requires people to input their real name and addresses; thats how people will see them on the service and on neighboorhood maps. In the Internet age, thats something you think twice about before typing in on a social network.

Tolia assured ABC News that nothing on Nextdoor can be indexed by Google and you have to be logged into that specific neighborhood to see anything about users. For instance, if you live in a town near New York City, only people in that town can see you. There is also the option to leave out your numeric house address; you can just put in your street. In addition, Nextdoor has integrated 50 different sex offender databases. People listed on them wont be able to join.

Privacy is a benefit, not a risk for users, Tolia said. He said 30 percent of the users list their childrens names and ages.

Riggs said privacy and personal safety was actually something he had never thought about when using the service. Instead, he sees the service as being a safety shield. People are able to freely communicate, he said. And the communication regarding something they see thats security or safety related has been extremely effective.

Nextdoor a free social network site links neighb toighb

Nextdoor, a free social network site, links neighbor to neighbor

Don Barfield, who lives in Los Angeles Cheviot Hills neighborhood, says Nextdoor has been helpful after crime reports and a recent power outage. (Katie Falkenberg / Los Angeles Times)

I had no idea a flasher plagued my Los Feliz neighborhood until I joinedNextdoor, a free social network website geared to individual neighborhoods.

I was, in fact, ignorant of considerable activity, all within blocks of me: a rash of car break-ins, stolen flowerpots, cat-killing coyotes, a murder suspect, an illegal house demolition and a lost French bulldog named Batgirl.

Its the latest hyper-local trend: connecting with your neighbors via smartphones and laptops. Since its launch in 2011, San Francisco-based Nextdoor has penetrated 1 in 5 U.S. neighborhoods, more than 36,000 neighborhoods in all 50 states.

Los Angeles County has 1,292 neighborhood sites; Orange County, 476.

Nextdoor, co-founded by Nirav Tolia, aims to help people keep up with whats going on around them and reverse a trend toward disengaged neighborhoods.

Members must give real first and last names as well as verified home addresses to join Nextdoor neighborhoods that on average comprise 750 households. Outsiders cant join or view the neighborhood news feed.

Nextdoor is designed to be a problem-solving site, its neighborhood news free of the frippery often found on Facebook, such as vacation, cat or kid photos. (Neighborhoods monitor their own sites.) Besides tracking crime and safety issues, neighbors can display classified ads and create groups geared to interests, exchange recommendations for baby sitters and dentists, display photos of lost pets, pose questions and post events.

Don Barfield joined Nextdoor after his Cheviot Hills neighborhood suffered nine burglaries in one day last June.

The police caught the suspects, based on a photo a neighbor posted to Nextdoor, said Barfield, one of 765 members within 1,481 total households on Nextdoors Cheviot Hills site.

Barfield uses Nextdoors smartphone app and receives up to 15 pop-up posting notifications a day, some of them urgent alerts about suspicious activity. Notifications can be filtered to only such alerts, turned off or keyed to such popular categories as recommendations and crime and safety.

Authorized police and fire departments can post on Nextdoor and read replies but cannot view neighborhood news feeds. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has similar privileges: His recent post encouraged me to vote in Los Feliz council elections.

Some Cheviot Hills members post clips from home security cameras, which they said helps increase awareness and target thieves.

This is all about immediacy, Barfield said. Seeing it live.

After recent earthquakes, Barfield and neighbors used the site to coordinate check-ins on solitary elderly neighbors. During a six-hour power outage, a neighbor offered his freezer space, powered by a generator.

Gregs now helping me to figure out the best generator to buy, Barfield said.

The potential to cultivate such Mayberry-style neighborliness is perhaps the genius of Nextdoors confined communication model, which purports to build stronger and safer neighborhoods. Barfield said trust and familiarization has been built among Cheviot Hills Nextdoor members.

Nextdoor bills website privacy as a benefit. I initially, however, viewed it as a risk. I adjusted public settings to reveal only my street name, and I scoured my profile page: no photo or contact information. My perhaps paranoid thought: Psychotic stalkers usually live down the block, not in the next county, right?

The company says Nextdoor goes to great lengths to ensure privacy, which includes password controls and search engine blocks. The service currently is ad-free.

Being a social network site, Nextdoor can at times grow chatty, Barfield said. Members can veer off topic, and a few are pugnacious.

Ive witnessed similar activity in neighborhoods adjacent to my 133-member Los Feliz Knolls site. (Members can choose to share posts with nearby neighborhoods but cannot view those neighborhood news feeds or profiles.) A mute feature allows members to hide selected member posts.

It can get a little bit ticky-tacky, Barfield said. We had some issues in the beginning, but we keep it pretty clean.

Nextdoors biggest payoff perhaps lies, yes, next door. I recently pocketed my smartphone to attend a breakfast mixer posted on my Los Feliz site.

I actually met several of my neighbors.

What U.S. adults say about their neighbors

AHarris Interactive2013 online survey of 2,021 U.S. adults conducted for Nextdoor found that:

72% knew more of their neighbors growing up than they do now.

92% consider themselves to be good neighbors.

56% agree that they interact very little with their neighbors.

36% say they dont approach neighbors because they dont want to seem nosy.

76% feel they could depend on a neighbor in the event of a natural disaster.

Nextdoor – Neighborhood App

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Nextdoor is the free, private social network for your neighborhood. It is the best way for you and your neighbors to hear whats happening in your local community.

Whether youre looking to get to know the people on your street, hire a local babysitter, find garage sale deals, or sell your unwanted household items, Nextdoor makes it easy to talk with neighbors about what matters most to you.

People are using Nextdoor in over 180,000 neighborhoods around the world to:

• Track down a trustworthy babysitter

• Quickly get the word out about crime and safety

• Get a recommendation for a great deal on house painters

• Share information during a natural disaster

• Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Before Nextdoor, I didnt know there were several qualified babysitters living nearby and looking for work. It was easy to feel comfortable hiring my neighbors daughter to watch my son after school. – Patrick, Mission East

This year for Spring Cleaning, we wanted to sell old appliances, tools, clothing, and electronics on Nextdoors For Sale & Free section. In no time, our neighbors stopped by to make a deal and take things off our hands. It was easier than Craigslist, and it feels good knowing our household items have found a new home in the neighborhood. – Dan, Hayes Valley

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Nextdoor doesnt run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require it.

Great to be part of the Neighborhood!

I enjoy this app for the most part and find the good outweighs the bad for me. I like that our neighborhood beat cop can post information and alerts; it has an option to list items for sale or go to the marketplace if youre shopping; keeps me updated on road closures/construction; neighbors can post/reply to each other – weve discussed alternatives to our local cable company; neighbors reporting suspicious activity and one even uploaded a surveillance video of someone stealing a package off their porch)…and the like. Plus you can choose how large you want your neighborhood to be – the whole city or specific neighborhoods. What I dont like is really only the lost/found pets posts. When i first joined, I saw a post and thought how useful this is, what a beneficial service – and it totally is! But I had no idea how many animals go missing or are found in my area. Easily 4 posts per day on different animals – so I get 4 emails that day – because I get a new email for each new post (not the replies to them, thank goodness). Now I could alleviate this by reducing my neighborhood area, or by opting out of email alerts – either of which I want to do because I like to keep up with whats going on in my area – I guess Im a cyber-Mrs. Cravitts. Anyway, I think most people, even student renters, would like this app.

App is pretty good when it works. It would be great to see a complete deletion of inbox messages rather than archiving. Its not hard to implement. Otherwise, its a good app to keep track of what is going on in your neighborhood/area. Not happy with the fact that there are times when NextDoor is down. What I find hilarious about the app is its informative in letting you know who the crazies/gossipers/busybodies are in your neighborhood. Its entertaining for sure.

Wow, even though the hurricane has been downgraded to a tropical storm, this app has been a failure at consistently working during this time. There are critical communications that are always updated in my area through this app and all I have seen is a try again later message. Im not the only neighbor in my area that has had this issue. If you have an urgent message to communicate to your community or need to stay up to date with info from local offices of emergency management notifications, use Facebook. This app has been truly disappointing. Havent been able to check my community feed for the last hour. My area is under a flood warning, flash flood watch, tornado watch and tornado warning. Id suggest Facebook, the FEMA app as well as the Red Cross app during times when receiving critical information can help you and your family.GoodSep 25, 2017_Lilith

App is pretty good when it works. It would be great to see a complete deletion of inbox messages rather than archiving. Its not hard to implement.
