About Us

We believe by bringing neighbors together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on.

Where neighborhoods happen — and connections are made

Nextdoor connects neighbors to each other — and to everything nearby: Local businesses, services, news updates, recommendations and stuff for sale from the people down the block.

Building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighborhoods are among the most important communities in our lives, have been guiding principles for Nextdoor since the beginning.

Everyone is a neighbor

We recognize that thriving communities are more than just residents. They’re also made up of the local businesses, nonprofits and public agencies that keep our neighborhoods strong and connected.

Residents: Connect with the people you wave or nod to in your neighborhood. Now you can know their names and chat online.

Local businesses: Instantly reach your most valuable customers — your neighbors — and become a trusted member of the neighborhood.

Nonprofits: Engage with the people who need you most and find support from donors nearby with features like Sell for Good.

Public agencies: Share critical, real-time information directly at the neighborhood level.

Brands: Provide locally relevant products and services that improve neighbors’ daily lives.

How we’re different

Real people at real addresses — Connect with neighbors who have verified their identity; they’re the same people you wave to on the block.

If it’s happening nearby you’ll hear about it — You’re automatically connected to everyone nearby, and whether you need to find a local pro or a lost dog, you can reach out to neighbors in an instant.

Your privacy is our priority — We do not share your name, address or email with advertisers, and your conversations will not be indexed by search engines. We are committed to building trust with neighbors every day.
