Over the past several months, Nextdoor has been testing a new way to engage our members in conversations about topics affecting their local communities with News on Nextdoor.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve added another valued local news organization to the neighborhood conversation: ABC11 Eyewitness News. ABC11 delivers important news updates to the greater Raleigh-Durham area, and today joins Nextdoor as our first broadcast partner on the East Coast.
Since Nextdoor launched in 2011, Raleigh and Durham neighbors have embraced Nextdoor in thousands of neighborhoods across the area, and we’ve worked with ABC11 reporters on countless stories highlighting local communities. We know that ABC11 deeply values connecting with their audience in new ways, so we were eager to partner with them to better connect with and engage their community.
On Nextdoor, ABC11 can target where they post local news stories down to the neighborhood level, so Nextdoor members in Raleigh and Durham can expect to see hyperlocal news that is highly relevant to their specific communities. They will also have the opportunity to share their voice about topics that matter most. ABC11 can now post open-ended questions or polls about hyper-local issues and receive input from Nextdoor members for stories they are working on.
ABC11 news stories will appear in Nextdoor newsfeeds across the greater Raleigh-Durham area, as well as in members’ Daily Digests. ABC11 can see and respond to replies to their posts; however, the rest of the neighborhood conversations remains private for the verified members of each community.
We are excited that ABC11 shares our mission to grow community and help elevate the neighborhood voice, and we look forward to a successful partnership.
Welcome to the neighborhood, ABC11!
