Nextdoor announces first API partnership with Microsoft to deliver hyperlocal neighborhood content to users
Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND), the neighborhood network, is partnering
with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) to display Nextdoor’s hyperlocal,
neighbor-generated content directly within Microsoft properties
including MSN and Microsoft Bing. This marks the first time a
partner is using a Nextdoor-built API to fetch content and host on
their site or app.
Going forward, trending public posts from Nextdoor will be
integrated directly into Microsoft properties, delivering engaging
local neighborhood content to Microsoft users in the United States.
For example, people using Microsoft Bing, Microsoft Start Feed, or
MSN in their preferred city will be able to view Nextdoor content
for that specific area.
Nextdoor connects neighbors with each other and everything
nearby, including businesses and public services. Today, neighbors
rely on Nextdoor in over 290,000 neighborhoods globally and nearly
one in three U.S. households. Integrating popular Nextdoor posts
from neighbors, businesses, and public services creates an engaging
experience on Microsoft properties while providing more people with
timely, local information.
Kiran Prasad, Chief Product Officer at Nextdoor,
said: “Neighbors come to Nextdoor to discuss local
information, exchange goods and services, and mobilize in their
community. This is Nextdoor’s first partnership of its kind and we
are delighted to partner with Microsoft to distribute relevant
neighborhood news and enable more neighbors to build real-world
connections with those nearby. Nextdoor is the neighborhood network
and we look forward to developing more strategic integrations and
connecting partners with our uniquely engaged audience.”
Taroon Mandhana, Corp Vice President of Content Services at
Microsoft, added: “Nextdoor helps connect an engaged local
audience, and this integration marks the beginning of an important
strategic partnership. Our mission at Microsoft Start is to help
users access informational content that is trustworthy, timely and
personalized to their interests. We are excited to see our users
access Nextdoor’s hyperlocal content in their feed and look forward
to deepening our partnership further.”
Neighbors in the majority of the U.S. can now view integrated
Nextdoor posts from their community at www.msn.com/en-us/news/local
and www.bing.com/maps. All neighbors can join their neighborhood by
downloading the Nextdoor app or visiting nextdoor.com.
Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND) is where you connect to the neighborhoods
