Here at OurHood HQ we’re always looking for new ways to improve your experience with our platform, and we are working around the clock to deliver you a better product.

Our users are always top of mind and your feedback is greatly received. Since many of you have asked about sharing information with nearby Hoods we decided to implement a few new features.

Share posts with other nearby neighbourhoods:
The nearby Hoods feature allows you to share posts with neighbourhoods within a 5km radius of your own Hood. You can choose whether your posts are shared in just your neighbourhood, or if they will appear in the other Hoods. When you post something you will be asked where you’d like to share that post. Information that is shared only to your neighbourhood will be kept private for just your own Hood.

Receive posts from other nearby neighbourhoods:
You can also choose whether you’d like to see noticeboard posts made in other nearby neighbourhoods. Go to your name at the top left of the page, click settings, Hood settings, and simply click on the Hoods you’d like to access.

Lost pets don’t only roam inside your neighbourhood boundaries! This is an instance where you might want to notify your neighbours in nearby Hoods. Some things are useful to post to a larger audience, others might not. But remember the choice is yours – you decide how you consume and share information.

So, what are you waiting for? Connect with your local OurHood site and join the conversation with your neighbours. Click on, and login, or sign up, and while you’re at it, go and welcome your all your neighbours to OurHood using the ‘invite your friends’ button!

Connecting Neighbours. Strengthening Communities.
