The City of Fort Collins is joining Nextdoor.com, a private social network. As opposed to a majority of websites, Nextdoor.com is a social network without anonymity, where members are required to live in network neighborhoods. Residents must verify their addresses to be a part of the network.
Key staff from the City of Fort Collins will be able to post important information onto the City’s network including information about crime, safety updates and local street repairs. However — as opposed to social networking sites like Facebook — Nextdoor.com is a private network where city staff cannot access resident websites, contact information or content.
Hopefully, Nextdoor.com will be able to foster communal growth and increase connectivity within the neighborhoods of Fort Collins.
