A way to socialize online with your neighbors comes to Rockford.
City officials bring the social media site Nextdoor to town.
It's a website that allows residents to interact with each other in private neighborhood groups. Members can share info, public safety concerns, events and even details on lost pets.However, they do not have access to the individual pages like members do.
Nextdoor goes live in Rockford Tuesday. It is free to use."The design of a broader social network will allow us to meet their needs and to communicate, inform and share information with as many of our citizens as possible," said Mayor Larry Morrissey.
