To enhance sharing of local updates or Queries about Anything among the Community Members, Facebook is testing a new feature which allows users to connect with their neighbors through its social network and introduced a New Feature called NEIGHBORHOOD (available now in Canada and will be rolling out soon for U.S. users to test.)
Facebook Neighborhoods is a dedicated space within the Facebook app designed to help you connect with your neighbors, participate in your local community and discover new places nearby.
Throughout the pandemic and especially in the past year, we’ve seen just how crucial these connections can be. Facebook Neighborhoods makes it easier to do this, bringing the local experience across Facebook into one place.
Are you curious How it Works!!!
Facebook Neighborhoods is a section of the Facebook app dedicated to your neighborhood, To create Neighborhoods profile that’s different from your main Facebook profile. To join, you’ll need to be 18 years or older and confirm your neighborhood.in addition, you also have the option to join your Nearby Neighborhoods to see neighbors and posts from your surrounding neighborhoods.
When you create your Neighborhoods profile, you can choose to add interests, favorite places and a bio so people can get to know you within the Neighborhoods Directory. You can write a post to introduce yourself, participate in discussions on posts from fellow neighbors and answer Neighborhoods Questions in the dedicated feed. People can also take on roles within Neighborhoods, including socializers who spark friendly conversations.
Discover New Places and Get Local Recommendations:-
If you’re looking for advice on where to get the best coffee or a locksmith in the area, you can use the Recommendations feature in Neighborhoods to get suggestions from your local community. Also, the Neighborhoods Favorite Polls allow neighbors to vote on their favorite places and businesses in the area, including restaurants, parks and more.
Moderation and Safety:-
We built Neighborhoods to be safe and inclusive, with Neighborhoods Guidelines to help keep interactions among neighbors relevant and kind. Neighborhoods have moderators who use these Guidelines to review posts and comments in the Neighborhoods feed. If a post or comment appears to go against the Neighborhoods Guidelines, moderators can take action by hiding the post, which will then be reviewed by Facebook Community Operations. If the post violates Facebook Community Standards, the post will be removed from Neighborhoods.
Neighborhoods is an opt-in experience within the Facebook app so you choose whether to join Neighborhoods and create a profile.Your Neighborhoods profile includes your name, profile and cover photo from your Facebook profile and the name of your neighborhood. When you create a group in Neighborhoods, it can be private or open and visible or hidden. If your Neighborhood Group is private, only members of the group who have joined the neighborhood can see posts.
This feature is currently available in Canada, and will begin to roll out to select US cities soon.
