Next Door is a social network that a few islanders are experimenting with. With Facebook getting lots of bad publicity, a local only network might have some appeal although the jury is still out on whether or not Next Door is doing the same kind of intrusive stuff that Facebook does.

This short video gives and overview of what Next Door is supposed to do.

Last year when our transition team met one of the recommendations was to get a local network going to exchange information on for sale items, local questions and concerns. Next Door seems to have that potential.

So far only a few people have signed on but some have already gotten good results.

Take a look and see if you think it would be of value. Building strong community connections is the number one preparedness step to get yourself ready for hard times.
