… about neighbors, community and Front Porch Forum

Options for online neighborhood tools

I’m frequently approached by folks interested in Front Porch Forum for their neighborhood.  If they live in our pilot service area (Chittenden County, VT), they are welcome to join.  If not, then they can add their community to our waiting list.

But often people ask what steps they can take now and I offer some simple alternatives.  Well, I just found a succinct post that I’ll direct these inquiries to in the future from Matt on the UK LocalMouth blog.  He offers just enough detail to help the curious get started about a neighborhood…

  1. Blog
  2. Social network
  3. Bulletin board
  4. Group
  5. Content management system

And Front Porch Forum would be yet another type of option, where available.
