New Features Help You Stay Connected to More of the Neighborhoods You Care About

Written by Team Nextdoor

We know you care about your neighborhood — and you may also be interested in neighborhoods that are farther away, but still relevant: a big event happening on the other side of town or the re-opening of a restaurant in your old neighborhood. You can now create, share, and view relevant posts beyond your immediate neighborhood. 

We are rolling out a new audience option called Anyone. Posts marked for Anyone can now be shared with people who will find them interesting, whether in your home neighborhood or beyond. When you select this for your post, you or another Nextdoor member can share the post with friends and family, on and off Nextdoor, or on other social sites. Additionally, if the post is relevant, we may distribute it to additional neighborhoods beyond the poster’s Nearby Neighborhoods.

Some Nextdoor posts will only be relevant to nearby neighbors: a lost wallet or broken street light. But perhaps you want as wide a distribution as possible for others: planning a fundraiser or recommending a craftsman you love. Your post can now be distributed much more broadly.

You are always in control of your audience when you post. You can select: Anyone, which makes your post shareable with anyone on or off Nextdoor; Nearby neighborhoods, the neighborhoods close to you; or Your neighborhood, which is your neighborhood only.

We are excited about what you will create and share as you are able to connect to more people and more neighborhoods.

  • Great Idea for Safety sake!

    When might we be able to produce a Live Video in our Posts? I had to bring one in from Photos and it was warped! It would be nice to produce Live Videos in our Group! I would like to produce Live Meditation Videos for our Group!

    it takes a lot of navigation to direct this to the Right person; please expand your Neighborly Tools!

    Thank you,

  • With Inslee’s stay-at-home order now in place, the Phinney neighbors group is among a growing number of community groups experimenting with ways to stay emotionally “connected” as everyone adapts to Washington’s new ‘normal,’ where social gatherings are banned and social distancing rules apply at all times.
