A social network that enables truly local conversations to build stronger and safer communities. Reading that may feel like a time machine back to when Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) was just the website where you found old friends and played games on the internet. It’s actually a description of what may be the most underrated IPO of 2021, Nextdoor.
One of the things that can lead to the vitriol on social media is the anonymity it affords people. Rarely would people say hateful or insulting things to a person they have to see when getting the mail or attending a neighborhood kid’s birthday party. It’s that accountability and local focus– reinforced by the requirement that members verify their name, address, and neighborhood — that differentiates Nextdoor from the rest of the social media landscape.
