Monday Q&A: Social media keeps neighbors ‘talking’

An e-town crier is giving users throughout Salida and other communities a handy way to share information on lost pets, garage sales, block parties and burglaries. In less than a year, 432 families in 13 separate Salida neighborhoods of a few streets each have begun using Nextdoor, a social media site that verifies participants’ addresses before letting them join and helps them keep up on school activities, put out warnings about suspicious characters, share photos of road construction and sell kitchen tables to each other.
