Next Door App for Tate Township

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Department has introduced NextDoor.com to Tate Township.  It is a private social network for you, your neighborhood, and your community.  It’s an easy way for you to talk with your neighbors where you live. According to Ben Popper of TheVerge.com, it had expanded by June 2016 to over 100,000 US neighborhoods.

Popper says, Next Door requires users to register with proof of both their identity and address. Once accepted, you belong to a neighborhood and can see and speak with any nearby users who have signed up.

Some positive comments are, “Very good for local recommendations.” and “great place to get recommendations about dentists, doctors, contractors, gardeners.

The service has a tab for reporting crimes called crime and safety and you are invited to give an emergency contact person when you sign up.  Some other categories are Recommendations, For Sale or Free, and Events.

To find your neighborhood in Clermont County and to sign up for the Next Door App, go to NextDoor.com
