Neighbourly and social media

I do not have a great deal of interest in social media. My Facebook page is seldom updated and neither is my LinkedIn page. I have no interest in tweeting (Twitter) or most other social media websites.

The exceptions are Neighbourly (see below under ‘Continue Reading’), and recently WordPress (here!).

Why I do not recommend Neighbourly

Update about my Facebook posts.

Tweeting should be for left for Tweety bird/ Tweety Pie (not Twump).

Tweety bird “I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat.”

Maybe Tweety bird would say “I Taut I Taw a Puddy T*at” (looking at Trump).




What’s the difference between Tweety Bird and Trump?

  • Tweety bird has a better hairdo
    (Trump should try feathers instead of hair)
  • Tweety bird might like coffee but Trump prefers covfefe

This blog is my first real attempt at blogging.

One social media website that I spend some time on is Neighbourly.

Neighbourly is a free NZ suburb-based website where all members are address-verified and must use their real names.

The rest of this post will introduce you to Neighbourly.

Some time ago I used to be a Lead in Titirangi for Neighbourly.

Neighbourly is a chance to share info, get/give away “treasures”, and recommend tradespeople, notify criminal/suspicious activity…

What is Neighbourly?

Neighbourly allows you to stay connected with your neighbours and community using a private neighbourhood website. It’s a free service that is designed to make your neighbourhood a safer and better place to live.

Members of Neighbourly use the website to interact on topics such as local events, after school activities, crime and safety, council issues, local services or even lost pets.

Neighbourly also helps to prevent crime for members within its communities. Members are kept informed of any suspicious activity and can also inform each other instantly of any urgent crime or safety updates.

Once you have signed up as a member with Neighbourly you can:

  • Plan a street party
  • Alert your community to a spate of vehicle break-ins
  • Share a photo of a visiting dog to locate owner
  • Discuss what impact Local Council plans will have on the neighbourhood
  • Recommend a trustworthy local mechanic
  • Ask when the roadworks down by the local park will be complete
  • Grab the contact details of a good local babysitter
  • Find out which cafe in the area has the best Eggs Benedict
  • Share sporting cancellations and updates
  • Sell an unused sofa
  • Let neighbours know mail has been stolen
  • Ask if anyone can loan a ladder for an hour
  • Ask for times of the walking school bus
  • Discuss local charities and how to get involved

Neighbourly’s Mission Statement

Neighbourly’s mission is to continually find ways to help build a sense of community in your neighbourhood. We believe a strong neighbourhood is one of the most important and useful communities in a person’s life and we want all of our members to be proud of their small slice of New Zealand!

  • We respect the privilege given to us to be part of the neighbourhoods we help build online
  • We’re for safer, stronger, friendlier neighbourhoods
  • We’re for using the power of modern technology to drive real world connections
  • We believe neighbours should be much more than “the people next door”
  • We’re for neighbours sharing good times together, and lending a hand during the not so good.
  • We believe a lost cat doesn’t need to be a catastrophe when a community is looking out for it
  • We’re for safer streets and street parties
  • We’re about sharing a summer bbq together, helping out with looking after the kids, and collecting the mail when you are away on holiday.
  • We’re about neighbourhood watch, emergency response and keeping an eye out for each other.
  • We believe fences are sometimes necessary, but online privacy is always necessary.
  • We’re for helping our members build communities they’re proud to be living in
  • We believe strong neighbourhoods improve each of our lives and we all have an obligation to do our part to build our own community

Note that I am only a member of Neighbourly and do not accept any responsibility for the website.

At times, it appears no one else does either 😦
