In social networking, a move to meet the people next door
CNN, Doug Gross :
The great promise of social networking has been the ability to stay in touch with friends, family and, let's face it, mere acquaintances without regard to traditional hurdles like geography.
But in the process of bringing everyone, from long-lost friends to grade-school acquaintances, just a status update away, the rise of Facebook, Twitter and the like may have left someone out: the folks next door.
"We did not see a social network that could connect us to what we believe is one of the most important communities of all, the neighborhood," said Nirav Tolia, CEO of Nextdoor.com. "We realized that neighborhoods really were the original social network."
