Guidelines:


Respecting others opinion

  • Disagreement is a natural phenomenon. Abusive language is not. Respect your neighbors and restrict your comments to issues.
  • At all cost, avoid personal attacks, racial comments or any discrimination based on caste and creed.
  • Do not try to dominate your hood and circles by posting irrelevant and spamy content.

Be yourself

  • Use your real name. Avoid nicknames and abbreviations.
  • Honestly tell your neighbors about yourself.
  • Use a real photo as display picture.

Share content that adds value

  • Inappropriate content that seems selfish or more of an advertisement is of no value to your neighbors.
  • Instead, adopt a sharing gesture. Look for ways you can be of help to your neighborhood.
  • Answer neighbors’ queries and observe a welcoming attitude to build your reputation.
  • Sharing is caring. Share things with your neighbors and give away items that are no longer in your use. There is no better feeling than helping others!
  • Talk about important neighborhood issues. Indulge in healthy community-talks.
  • Inform your neighbors about upcoming events.
  • Remember: A neighbor in need is a neighbor indeed.
