Nextdoor is the free, private social network for your neighbourhood. It is the best way for you and your neighbours to hear what’s happening in your local community.

Whether you’re looking to get to know the people on your street, hire a local babysitter, find boot sale deals, or sell your unwanted household items, Nextdoor makes it easy to talk with neighbours about what matters most to you.

People are using Nextdoor in over 14,000 neighbourhoods in the UK to:

• Track down a trustworthy babysitter
• Get a recommendation for a great deal on a decorator
• Hire a professional dog walker
• Sell an outgrown kids' bike
• Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Nextdoor doesn't run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require it.

Nextdoor is for neigbours 16 years of age and older.

NextDoor APP

I first heard about Nextdoor APP from a client that reviews and writes about different types of technology for Forbes Europe. When I was working on his property, he mentioned that he was going to review NextDoor and mentioned it may be a tool to use to get more connected in the neighbourhood. I searched for Nextdoor on the APP store and at first I didn’t understand it but slowly, and after using it for a few weeks, I now find it a indispensable tool for the following reasons;

1) It has helped me connect with neighbours and people around my neighbourhood. I’ve made new friends and contacts.

2) I run a small business and the APP has helped bring in new clients and helped me grow my business without the need of spending money to advertise.

3) The APP allows you to list items for sale or offer unneeded items to others for free. I picked up a brand new bedroom room suite for a third of the retail cost! And, continue to find bargains!

4) I volunteer in my local community and I advertise free workshops and events for free.

I genuinely like Nextdoor as a user and I have had APP installed for over two years, a lot longer than most APPs! I rate it five stars because of the above and the fact that I use it on a daily basis.

Quite Disturbing

I thought this app sounded a good idea. And potentially it could be a beneficial community resource. I’ve seen a couple of good outcomes as a result of the app. However, the advantages are outweighed by the negatives. The reality is the way in which my particular community uses it (and I’ve seen reviews discussing similar concerns in numerous other neighbourhoods) simply highlights the bigotry, racism and arrogance of my neighbours. For example, God forbid should there be a non-White person seen at someone’s door or a White person perhaps in a hoodie who doesn’t quite look middle-class enough, because that person’s photo could end up on the site with everyone suggesting the criminal intentions they are likely to have been harbouring. Horrible allegations are constantly made about people with little to no evidence. While a few rational neighbours will comment on such problematic assumptions and allegations, they’ll likely then in turn be subject to disparaging comments and nastiness. It’s so upsetting. Until there is more rigorous monitoring and handling of these issues, this resource will continue to compound societal division and fuel racism, snobbism and bullying.

Full of PC Police & Snowflakes

Technically the app usually functions with error however there is a significant number of community persons who deign to live their lives through the app and are at best hugely over sensitive snowflakes, attempting to be politically correct to the point of worthless contribution and woke with it.

It’s unofficially policed by some of the same persons and frankly you’re discouraged or at worst banned from posting objective criticism or any objective negative feedback - everything has to be ‘wonderful, perfect, lovely’ which we all know isn’t the real world we live in.

I have read the response to my feedback and frankly it’s irrelevant. It fails to address the fundamental problem with this platform - you are not allowed or permitted to post anything that is remotely negative however fact based, truthful and objective it may be and in fact a lot of folks appreciate otherwise they would be fooled into believing that everything is perfect and wonderful with the world around them and we cannot allow that can we.

Hi neighbour, thank you for your review, we really appreciate you sharing your thoughts. Please kindly note that Nextdoor has its Community Guidelines in place ( which outline the guidelines all neighbours are required to be mindful of when posting in their Nextdoor neighbourhood. This helps ensure that conversations remain civil, friendly and inclusive, so that all members of the community are welcome to join in. We appreciate that neighbours may have a difference of opinion on some matters, but always encourage this to be discussed in a civil way. Content that is not mindful of the Community Guidelines may be reported and removed. Emmi, Nextdoor Support
