Community Guidelines

Last Updated: Apr 30, 2018 12:06PM PDT

Our mission is to provide a platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world.

We want all neighbours to feel welcome, safe, and respected when using Nextdoor. For that reason, we've developed a set of Community Guidelines describing what behaviours are – and are not – allowed on Nextdoor. The crux of our Guidelines can be boiled down to one simple statement: Everyone here is your neighbour. Please treat each other with respect.

Violating these Guidelines does have consequences, including possible removal of content, suspension of posting privileges, or even a permanent ban from Nextdoor. Because of the diversity of people in any neighbourhood, please keep in mind that while something may be disagreeable to you, it may not violate our Community Guidelines.


Everyone here is
your neighbour.
Treat each other
with respect.


Be helpful, not hurtful

The heart and soul of Nextdoor are the helpful conversations that happen between neighbours. When conversations turn nasty, everyone on Nextdoor suffers. For this reason, we may remove posts and comments that discriminate against, attack, insult, bully, or belittle Nextdoor members. See more detail about this guideline.


Don’t use Nextdoor as your personal soapbox

Nextdoor is a communication platform that allows neighbours to mobilise and get stuff done like never before. However, pet projects that are pushed too hard, political campaigning and personal views on controversial non-local issues will inevitably rub one’s neighbours the wrong way. We rely on our members to report those who are over-posting, campaigning, repeatedly posting, or ranting about controversial, non-local issues. See more detail about this guideline.


Promote local businesses and commerce the right way

On Nextdoor, we support local businesses and encourage neighbours to share helpful information about their favourite businesses and services. We also encourage neighbours to buy, sell, and give things away. Nextdoor is actively working on solutions for local businesses to participate on Nextdoor. See more detail about this guideline.

To stay up-to-date on these opportunities, sign up here.


Use your true identity

Nextdoor is a network for you and the people who live in your local community. To that end, using your true identity and honestly representing yourself are key parts of being a Nextdoor member. See more detail about this guideline.


Keep it clean and legal

Keep all content and activity family-friendly, legal, and adhere to our rules about regulated goods and services. See more detail about this guideline.
