Nextdoor

Whether promoting yard sales, selling strollers or reporting break-ins, Pittsburghers get the good out of social media service Nextdoor. 

The City of Pittsburgh recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its partnership with the service, which places users in private online communities comprised solely of members of their own neighborhoods.

The city of Pittsburgh entered into a partnership Thursday with the social networking site Nextdoor, which allows users to connect with others in their city or neighborhood through private websites.

The site has been in the Pittsburgh area for more than two years and is represented in 67 neighborhoods, according to Sarah Leary, co-founder of the San Francisco-based company.

With the partnership, city officials will now have the ability to use the site to relay information to the entire city or specific neighborhoods, Leary said.
