SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 14, 2023 — Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND), the neighborhood network, today announced new advances designed to accelerate the growth of its must-buy local advertising platform.

Nextdoor is continuing to prioritize brand safety and brand measurement via collaborations with Integral Ad Science (Nasdaq: IAS), a global leader in digital media quality and Oracle Advertising (announced last October). Additionally, Nextdoor is announcing a global partnership with digital out of home (DOOH) leader, DIVE Billboards to launch “Nextdoor Outdoor.”

With Nextdoor Ads Manager, we’re able to provide an accessible and efficient advertising platform that allows businesses to connect with their communities on a personal and meaningful level.

Rolling out in 2023, Nextdoor Ads Manager offers businesses of all sizes the opportunity to leverage the power of hyper-local advertising by targeting specific neighborhoods and communities in their service areas.
