Add Nextdoor Local Posts to your Organic dashboard to further tap into the community sentiment on Nextdoor, analyze and understand widespread conversations in order to improve lives in your community.

Historically, Nextdoor Neighborhood conversations have not been accessible to any Nextdoor user who is not a local resident. This also posed a blindspot for Zencity users, who were missing out on conversations held by a staggering one-third of American households using Nextdoor. According to ND statistics, a substantial percentage of ND users abstain from other mainstream social media platforms, making it a unique source of untapped community sentiment.

Now, following an exciting partnership between Nextdoor and Zencity, local conversations can be available in your dashboard! 


Adding Nextdoor to your dashboard

In order to include local posts from Nextdoor in your dashboard, you must have at least one agency account connected. Once you've connected your account, our team will set up a new data source called "Nextdoor Local Posts" in your organic dashboard, within 48 hours.

Important to know: Nextdoor data is only available for active Nextdoor users. Once your source has been added to the dashboard, you'll be required to post to Nextdoor through the Zencity platform on a regular basis. If no post has been published within 15 days, the data source will be temporarily suspended and you'll receive a notification in the dashboard once a week. Data will renew once a new post has been published, but will not be backfilled.


What's included?

During setup, the Zencity team will determine a geographical radius that covers your jurisdiction, from which posts will be pulled (posts location are the address a user provided when signing up for Nextdoor). For cities, additional filtering will ensure that only posts from users living in the city shall be imported. 

Additionally, Zencity aims to only import local-government related posts by filtering the data to mentions of relevant keywords, combined with our award-winning AI algorithm that recognizes city-related topics. 

If you're interested in ensuring a specific keyword is included, please reach out to our support using the chat button on the right side of your screen and share any required keywords you wish to follow on Nextdoor.
