We have 10 reviews for Nextdoor. The average overall ratings is 1.7 / 5 stars.
Overall Opinion: I love this app. It's free and easy to use. I am a handyman and receive all of my work from the posts in this app. Yes, some people post or write stupid things and Nextdoor also has their own rules just like every other app. Just have to play the game or don't use it.
Pros: Free and easy to use. Great way to connect with local people.
Cons: You must use your real name. Could be a concern for some people, especially women.
Overall Opinion: Horrible ..., the leads at Spanish Trail in Las Vegas are destroying the credibility of this app. Groups get together and BULLY others for not agreeing with their narrow minded left winged ideas .
Overall Opinion: Nextdoor sucks. They banned me for using my nickname as my first name, which was the shortened part of my first name. Told me I could no longer access the site until I provided my full first name. Somebody actually reported me for using my nickname. I had been there for over a year and one day I get this email. All I can say is good riddance. I have no need to want to belong to ANY social platform that is so restrictive.
Overall Opinion: Nextdoor does not allow free speech. They can disable or block your account or delete your posts without valid reasons, because they let the neighbors be leads and neighbors can be one-sided. There are also fake accounts the neighbors can create to bully others and hijack postings. There are lots of annoying spams, so you need to filter your emails. I agree with others giving bad reviews. You will hate this app because they try and will shut you up.
Overall Opinion: Nextdoor.com is a monopoly that acts like a bully to keep everyone in perfect line. If you say ANYTHING that is not sweetness and light Nextdoor.com just boots you off and won't let you back on. There is no warning, there is no message telling you why you can't get back in, there is no way to talk to them, you just get booted off. Their rules of conduct are so general that you never know if you are in-line our out. They keep you in fear all the time that you will get booted off by saying the slightest thing out of line. And, of course you MUST BE 100% POLITICALLY CORRECT!!!! If you are not that is a mortal sin that will get you booted off in an instant. THERE MUST BE AN ALTERNATIVE TO NEXTDOOR.COM. PLEASE, SOMEONE CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THEM!!!!!!
Overall Opinion: It is my opinion that NextDoor is NOT trustworthy as it actively supports criminal activities on NextDoor, specifically unlicensed criminal contractors and unlicensed criminal businesses. In March and April 2019, HuffPost and Wired reported that NextDoor had paid a firm to improve NextDoor's reputation. "During the George Floyd protests, many members of the National Leads Forum - a community of Nextdoor moderators - criticized NextDoor member's support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Too many NextDoor users had their accounts suspended or their posts deleted for supporting BLM. On June 11, 2020 Nextdoor explicitly instructed its moderators to allow discussions on the Movement for Black Lives, including BLM." That instruction was and continues to be ignored by NextDoor moderators. There is no customer service at NextDoor. There is no way to directly contact NextDoor. The hundreds of Reviews of NextDoor at BBB, which NextDoor is NOT a member of, are numerous and overwhelmingly and compellingly negative. NextDoor is a for-profit corporation. NextDoor's revenues are solely based on ad views. I've come to the opinion that NextDoor promotes less good that it does the bad of scams, racism, unlicensed contractor criminals, sexism, hatred, unlicensed business criminals, bigotry, harassment, neighbor bashing, slander, gossip, bullying, name-calling, racial-profiling, nastiness, swearing; all the most extreme in truly bad behavior solely to acquire more ad views and their resulting profit to NextDoor. I was also quite disturbed to later learn from the news that Nextdoor founder Nirav Tolia, when the good Lord passed out a conscience, a heart, a feeling for others, must have been out for a beer and missed out, plead down a very very un-neighborly charge of FELONY Hit-and-Run which resulted an injured woman to a sentence of 30 days in jail for Hit-And-Run. Several witnesses recorded his license plate and description, turned it over to police, who then showed up at Nextdoor founder Nirav Tolia's home where they arrested him. 1 John 3:4 ESV / Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. "Tolia has a lengthy history of lawsuits, including one for defrauding former business partners. In the court documents for a trademark suit, Tolia is even quoted calling himself "an angry driver." In August 2020, NextDoor founder Nirav Tolia listed for sale his San Francisco home in the Pacific Heights neighborhood for $25 million. Tolia bought the home in 2011, for $7 million The Wall Street Journal reported. NextDoor sent my family and I an invitation to join. We did. "Seems like a good idea, a social site in which the universe of participants is limited to your neighborhood and surrounding neighborhood. There's a potential for great benefit to post information relevant to your neighbors and to get such information, as well as local alerts and such." Nextdoor is a privately-held company based in San Francisco with backing from prominent investors including Benchmark, Shasta Ventures, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Riverwood Capital, Bond, Axel Springer, Comcast Ventures and others. NextDoor has pros and cons. After a trial period of a year we've come to the opinion NextDoor's cons outweigh its pros. Unfortunately, my Nextdoor online neighborhood was hijacked by criminal activities. NextDoor is violating my state’s laws and my county’s laws and my city’s laws as it is, for profit, providing a platform for criminals to conduct their crimes. In my state as in all 50 states, conducting a contracting business without the required contractors license is a crime and a Deceptive Crime Practice and Fraud. In my state as in all 50 states, conducting a business without the required business license is a fine and a Deceptive Crime Practice and Fraud. In my county, as in most if not all counties in America, conducting a business without the required fictitious name certificate is a crime and a Deceptive Crime Practice and Fraud. In my city, as in most if not all cities in America, conducting a business without the required business license is a crime and a Deceptive Crime Practice and Fraud. In spite of numerous complaints to NextDoor, NextDoor continues to give these criminals a platform to conduct their criminal activities. Misinformation by illegal criminal unlicensed contractors and unlicensed criminal businesses is routinely posted and re-posted and spammed that causes great harm and NextDoor continues to allow it. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/nicolenguyen/nextdoor-scams NextDoor does not enforce its own rules and routinely itself violates its own rules. Even after being notified and being repeatedly notified of numerous and on-going public criminal activities on NextDoor, NextDoor continues to actively support criminal activities on NextDoor. NextDoor is a for-profit corporation. NextDoor's revenues are solely based on ad views. In the year we used NextDoor, we've come to the opinion that NextDoor promotes less good that it does the bad of scams, racism, unlicensed contractor criminals, sexism, hatred, unlicensed business criminals, bigotry, harassment, neighbor bashing, slander, gossip, bullying, name-calling, racial-profiling, nastiness, swearing; all the most extreme in truly bad behavior solely to acquire more ad views and their resulting profit to NextDoor. Although Proverbs 3:27 "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act: The NextDoor leads aka moderators were and are clearly NOT supportive of military Veterans and Active Duty GIs. After a trial period of a year we've come to the opinion that NextDoor is routinely actively involved in illegal racketeering and is illegally aiding and abetting criminal activities as it does nothing to ensure a legal, or safe environment like they falsely claim. NextDoor has repeatedly demonstrated it is only interested in its REVENUES no matter how obtained. Hence why they are a BILLION dollar company. Proverbs 28:9 ESV / If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. I wonder what NextDoor would be like if it actually enforced its own rules. That we will never know as long as "I'm from a corporation and I'm here to help," means help ONLY the corporation executives NOT you the corporation's customers or employees or shareholders or community or neighborhood. Matthew 6:24-25 ESV / "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Cons: It Is My Opinion That NextDoor Is NOT Trustworthy As It Actively Supports Criminal Activities On NextDoor.
Overall Opinion: Moving soon, and support refuses to let me change my address without providing a copy of lease agreement or ownership. That is shady as ****. Stay away from this app, pretty clear they want to steal information
Cons: Stay away from this app, pretty clear they want to steal information
Overall Opinion: Our NextDoor group is becoming increasingly political and nasty. There doesn't appear to be any monitoring by group leaders. I like it for getting recommendations on contractors, home services, etc., and alerts to what's going on in the neighborhood, but every single day, someone's post turns political and the ensuing comments get more & more nasty. I'm about ready to find an alternative.
Pros: Great for service & contractor recommendations / neighborhood news & alerts.
Cons: Too much political discourse.
Overall Opinion: Serves its purpose but requires members to use their full name. I'm not comfortable having my last name appearing on the message posts. So I'm leaving the app. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Pros: Good to get updates on recent activities, crimes and such in and around the local community.
Cons: Serves its purpose but requires members to display their full name on all posts. I'm not comfortable having my last name appearing on the message posts. So I'm looking for an alternative app.
Overall Opinion: At first, this was a grea site , and then someone started stalking me, I reported it to ND and they just fluffed me off!!! then I wanted to change my email, and lo and behold ND accuses me of not using my name, what a bunch of bs!! I posted some lost cats and 2 dogs before and the owners found their furry babies, but now, with all the B.S. since covid, this site is beyond frustrating to me. I would love to see a competor pop up because I will use them .. I am a very nice person, ask anyone I know or who knows me from my community, this site there are stalkers and rude people and I never said anything to hurt anyone, yet the stalker was allowed to stay on the site.. think about it, petafiles, criminals are all allowed on that site.
Pros: We can see other people posting warnings, can let people know they lost a pet, or sell something or even get advise for how to's or find a handyman or other professional reviews which has helped me in the beginning of this ND site. I met some really nice friends on there and found lost pets and reunited them with their worried families. I use this mostly for lost pets or suspicious activities.
Cons: Stalkers can find you, criminals can see whose posting what about them or activities, it puts you in front of bad people, you have to put your real name and address -- this is so bad and criminals can find you. Customer service is rude! They block you for no good reason!!! It bothers me they side with criminals.
Using social media to fight crime is happening more across the Oklahoma City metro. But using Nextdoor could also end up putting your safety at risk, and even lead criminals right to you. Subscribe...
