Neighbortree is an application for communities to use for setting up websites for social networking. This allows neighborhoods to provide news, announcements, forums, and more to residents of the community.
There is no historical or statistical information available about neighbortree other than it is a startup from Kansas City.
This is a one-of-a-kind free application for residents of neighborhoods, apartment buildings, condos, subdivisions, or any residential community to create a social networking platform specifically by and for those living there.
Sites are managed by registered community members. They may include options such as News, announcements, forums, information about the community including a directory and contact list, event calendar, photo sharing, and more.
Any section may be designated as “restricted” for registered members of the community only.
The forum includes areas for general discussion, social events, for sale, property management issues, and common areas. The information section includes space for an “About” the neighborhood statement and photo, sponsors, FAQ, documents, safety issues, a directory, and a place for document uploads. The events calendar allows users to create entries for any upcoming events.
The interface is clean but outdated. Anyone with minimal computer knowledge should be able to at least access the information and/or participate fully in the site. Neighbortree has indicated that they will also revenue-share any advertising that is neighborhood specific with that community.
Potential users may send an email requesting information about initiating a site for their neighborhoods. Name, company, phone, email, reason for inquiry, and comment are requested on the form. A neighbortree representative will respond with further information.
Neighbortree is completely free to use.
Neighbortree is a communication solution for communities. With busy lives, it is sometimes difficult to keep in touch with the people right next door, let alone down the street. By having an online community that residents can use to check in and see what is going on, interact with others, and plan events, people will be more likely to participate in community events and actually get to know more of their neighbors. Any community can benefit from this service.
