Nextdoor, a private social network for your neighborhood. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors—and only you and your neighbors—to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world.
This company have raises the $18.6 Million in order to strengthen their services across the United States. And it was announced by them on Tuesday from Benchmark Capital, Greylock Partners, Shasta Ventures and DAG Ventures, among others.
All Things Digital mentioned that “Nextdoor’s major focus is on the “local,” a concept trumpeted by Benchmark partner and Nextdoor investor Bill Gurley (seen most recently in a well-reasoned post on his personal blog). As Tolia describes it, we use Facebook for friends, LinkedIn for business and Twitter for interests. Nextdoor fills in the smallest and yet most personal of cracks — the neighborhood.”
Tolia said the Venture Beat that “Everyone lives in a neighborhood and wants it to be stronger,”. He said “Safety is a universal concern. I don’t know too many other internet companies that facilitate safer places to live.”
“The more users communicate using online mechanisms, they more likely they are to communicate in person,” He said “If you use Nextdoor to get to know your neighbors, you are way more likely to walk outside the door and meet them in person. Ultimately, we are trying to get people to meet in real world.”
