What’s a typical response to a question posted on Front Porch Forum? Well… it’s hard to say. Some people respond on-forum, but most do so directly to the author via email, while still others phone or chat on the sidewalk… or even on the literal front porch.
FPF member Greg Fanslow recently documented one such exchange (of the thousands that occur each year on FPF in our pilot region). He asked his neighbors via FPF for recommendations about replacement windows. Check out the results here. And keep in mind that each of the responses are labeled with the first and last name of the respondant and his/her street name and email address.
With these kind of direct results from clearly identified nearby neighbors, it’s no wonder more and more people keep joining FPF… people want to be able to connect with those who live around them.
