Local news is an integral part of the neighborhood conversation on Nextdoor. Today, we are excited to announce that we are featuring The Washington Post as one of the first news providers on Nextdoor in the Northeast and the first in the Washington D.C. area.
Over the past several years, neighbors have embraced Nextdoor in thousands of neighborhoods across the greater D.C. area. Now, The Washington Post will connect directly with D.C.-area residents on Nextdoor to share news, encourage discussions about local issues, and help source tips and local stories. Nextdoor members will find stories about, but not limited to, neighborhood-specific breaking news, social issues, local crime, dining, and entertainment.
“Fostering conversations and growing lasting relationships with our local readers continues to be a key focus for us at The Post,” said Greg Barber, director of digital news projects. “We’re excited to experiment with Nextdoor to bring our journalism to their engaged communities.”
The Washington Post’s news stories will appear in Nextdoor newsfeeds across Washington D.C., as well as members’ Daily Digests. The Washington Post can see and respond to replies to their posts; however, the rest of the neighborhood conversations remain private for the verified members of each community.
We know that The Washington Post values creating lasting relationships with their local readers, and it is a pleasure to welcome them to the Nextdoor neighborhood!
