8:36 am
stronger and safer community for everyone. >> you're not talking about setting up a network people can post more selfies. you're looking if you need to get rid of a couch, there are safety concerns in the neighborhood, those kinds of things? >> we are a social network but a social network about solving proble problems. it's about coming together with your neighbors to solve problems like finding a babysitter maybe more personal things like finding a lost dog or critical things like coming together in times of crime or natural disaster. >> how do you make sure the people using this are legitimate? >> well, nextdoor is a private social network and privacy to us means two things. the first thing you have to verify your address to join the service. so that when you go and talk with your neighbors you know they are your actual neighbors. the second thing about nextdoor is all of the conversations are private. you won't find them with a google search or shared on other social networks. we try to make it safe to share the sorts of things online you would feel safe sharing i don't have line.
8:37 am
>> i think something interesting in this app you suggest go next door and borrow a cup of sugar or something. what do you say to people this will allow people to isolate themselves even more? >> when we started the company, almost 30% of americans didn't know a single neighbor by name. part of the culprit was technology. technology in our busy lives. now technology can play a role in bringing back that sense of community and next door is an ice-breaker. not a replacement for the conversations that you have with your neighbors. it just makes it easy for those to happen. >> you actually are having partnerships with police departments in some communities. how does that work? >> one of the key cases for nextdoor is for neighbors to get together and create a virtual neighborhood watch to keep the neighborhood safer. one participate in those discussions needs to be the local police department. we have partnered with almost 1500 police departments across the country to create a great dialogue between neighbors and police to keep communities safer. >> how about neighborhoods behaving badly? can you potentially get banned from the site and do you watch
8:38 am
out for that kind of stuff? >> on nextdoor you have to use your real name and verify your address so the incentive to behaving badly is very, very low. at the same time, nextdoor is about solving problems so not about social things like gossip or getting to know your neighbors. it's about tapping into the power of the neighborhood. >> as with so many of these start-ups there is often criticism and one of the biggest criticisms for you guys there could be some component of racial profiling. you've been very avctive. u.s. we consider profiling to be unacceptable. how do you police that behavior? >> it's not up to us to police it but up to the neighbors. we made it clear that racial profiling is completely unacceptable on nextdoor. it hardly even happens but one occurrence is too many. we will do everything we can to remind our members that the constructive dialogue on nextdoor should stay civil and neighborly. >> how do you make money? >> we don't. we have been focused on creating the best member experience. we move forward to creating a business model we i think a
8:39 am
tremendous opportunity to connect neighbors and local businesses. >> you talk about you don't want these gossip sites. how do you prevent that? you're relying essentially on the community to police this system themselves. >> yeah. they don't really have to police the system. because the whole system is built to solve problems. it's about finding a babysitter, about getting rid of a used couch. it's about coming together if there are floods or fires. so the content itself doesn't really lend itself to gossip or people being nasty. the content lends itself to people coming together and helping each other to creating stronger and more tight-knit communities. >> we have heard a lot of about packages being stolen from porches around this time of the season especially. how does nextdoor help that? >> if your package has been stolen you can ask your neighbors if they have seen anything. if you know you're not going to be home when the package is being delivered you can ask a trusty neighbor to take possession of that package instead of you. >> it's a smart idea. it's nice. you should know your neighbors. >> i think it would be very
