When it comes to social media, we often see polarizing opinions about its affect on personal interaction. On one hand, it has a great ability to connect people from varying locations, cultures, and walks of life. It’s also an incredibly convenient way to spread information. On the other, it can replace valuable, face-to-face interaction.

So what’s the best way to use social media to be a better neighbor? Take advantage of social media’s positive aspects, but be aware of its downsides. Joining your neighborhood’s facebook page or nextdoor.com is a great way to get connected with your neighbors and communicate efficiently. Whether you’re looking for a babysitter, borrowing a lawn mower, or planning a block party, social media is a great way to get the word out.

Happy neighboring!
