YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE
The Hamilton Press is now linked into the best online platform to connect you with your community- Neighbourly.co.nz. This online community news board and forum is the way of the future and what sets it apart from any other social networking platform is that it all about your neighbourhood. This geographic connection is something that has been sorely lacking with online networking and Neighbourly does a fantastic job at bringing people together who live nearby to each other. When signing up to Neighbourly it does ask for some personal information including your address and identification details. This is important because it needs to know you are who you say you are and that the address is real so you can trust that you’re connecting with people who actually live in and around your suburb. Neighbourly.co.nz is growing at an extraordinary rate with over 420,000 members around New Zealand. The more people who join the more relevant it will become to Hamilton.
