I-Neighbors Goes Live

Announced today by MIT sociologist Keith Hampton:

I-Neighbors is live! A new website to increase social contact and participation at the neighborhood level: http://www.i-neighbors.org

The web site is ready and open to be used. I-Neighbors is a FREE social networking tool that connects people to neighbors in the same local community. Using I-Neighbors you can:

-Meet and communicate with your neighbors.
-Find neighbors with similar interests.
-Share information on local companies and services.
-Organize and advertise local events.
-Vocalize local concerns and ideas.

Members have access to services that include a neighborhood email list, a local directory, a shared photo album, a neighborhood messaging system, a tool to poll their neighbors' opinions, and a service that connects neighbors who work near each other for carpools. Unlike other web sites that allow global, national, or city-wide communication, I-Neighbors links members of a single neighborhood, defined by the people that create them.

You can find your local community or create a new neighborhood at http://www.i-neighbors.org. Once you create or join a neighborhood you can use use the web site to send email invitations to friends, or my favorite feature, print a paper flyer to give neighbors.
