Nextdoor: Newest way to communicate with your neighbors

     Developing successful social media sites seems to be where much of the action is today on the internet. Yesterday I mentioned a website I had recently discovered called Four Square. Today I want to mention another site that is trying to become the next big social media site.  Nextdoor  is a site that allows neighbors to quickly network around neighborhood issues.  Finding a local plumber, merchant or  a lost pet can now be done digitally.  Of course the business model for this site is to give local merchants an easy, cost effective method to advertise to those most likely to use their services.  Targeted advertising to their neighborhood.  I have set up a Nextdoor site for the Elkhorn neighborhood in Owen Brown.  This site could potentially be a more effective way for Village offices to communicate with its residents in real time instead of the periodic printed newsletters.

Music video for getting in the right mood for the weekend  When I hear some of the music from Bruce Springsteen you can hear the influence of zydeco in his music.
