Nextdoor offering free tools to help local businesses

Techstination feature for Thursday, July 9, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       The online neighborhood platform Nextdoor is offering free tools to local business owners to help them get things moving again.  Head of Product Tatyana Mamut…

“For the first time, we’re making it possible for local businesses to post directly into the Nextdoor news feed instantly.   It’s free and you don’t need to work to get followers on Nextdoor.  When you post, it goes out immediately to the whole neighborhood.”

The info you need is at www.nextdoor.com/localbusiness.    Nextdoor has also made some news of late for its decision to discontinue a feature that allowed users to send posts to their local police departments.  That came due to concerns that some posts were being used for racial profiling.

You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
