Nextdoor is on a rocky road towards a possible public offering
Nextdoor is a local social media app that acts as a digital public message board for neighborhoods where users can sell furniture, organize events and alert neighbors of danger. In the past year, monthly active users on Nextdoor grew 20 percent, according to Sensor Tower. It's provided neighbors and public agencies a platform to spread useful and important information during the pandemic. Unlike Citizen and Neighbors, Nextdoor is more than a crime-fighting app. It helps small businesses connect to their local customers and gain new customers with free business postings.cnbc.com

Maybe the note on community groups got you thinking of some good you’ve seen around town. Maybe you know of a friend -- or a friend of a friend -- spreading cheer or making masks or a beautiful grandparent-grandchild reunion that brought tears to your eyes. Perhaps you fixed up your house all spring and you think more people should see. Do you know of businesses, groups or individuals doing a little extra to help others?
