Keeping You Connected To The People And Places You Care About

Written by Jennie Sager

It’s more important than ever to stay tapped into those that matter most to you; where your family lives, where you work, or your former neighbourhoods where your close friends live. That’s why we’re rolling out a new option called Anyone

Posts marked with Anyone can now be shared with people who will find them interesting, whether in your neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods beyond the original Nearby neighbourhoods.

This also means that on Nextdoor, you can now create, share, and view relevant posts beyond your immediate neighbourhood; big events happening on the other side of town, an emergency alert a few suburbs over, or the re-opening of your favourite restaurant in your old neighbourhood.

Some Nextdoor posts will only be relevant to nearby neighbours –  a lost wallet or broken street light. But, perhaps you want as wide a distribution as possible for others.  For example, if you are planning a fundraiser, getting the word out about an event, or searching for school recommendations for your children. 

Your Nextdoor neighbourhood is not going anywhere — and you will always be in control of your experience. When posting, you can select: Anyone, which makes your post shareable with anyone on or off Nextdoor; Nearby neighbourhoods, the neighbourhoods close to you; or Your neighbourhood only. At the same time, if you don’t wish to see posts from more neighbourhoods, you can customise your settings to “Nearby Neighbourhoods”. 

We are excited about what you will create and share as you are able to connect with more people and places that matter to you.


Don’t forget to download the Nextdoor app and take the neighbourhood with you on-the-go.
