35 Things That Happen Next Door Shared By This Online Group
We have never spent so much time in our homes as we have since the start of the pandemic. And it’s likely not going anywhere. With more and more workplaces shifting to hybrid, or to entire work from home models, homes are likely to remain our safe office spaces that have obvious perks. In fact, this 2019 survey found that a hybrid working environment would make employees happier (83%), feel more trusted (82%), improve their work/life balance (81%), and make them more likely to recommend their company to a friend (81%). Are we then now living our best lives, well, at least in that sense?
Not so fast. Staying at home means that you not only gotta spend more time with your family members, whether you like it or not, but that you’re not alone doing so. Your neighbors are also here too. That means a lot of noise, from construction sounds to loud quarrels or dance music smashing through the speakers. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Some people are (un)lucky enough to have real weird neighbors to deal with. And when I say weird, I mean it. Thanks to a subreddit called “NextDoor,” we can now get a glimpse into what it's like to live next door to someone that makes you wonder 'what on earth is wrong with some people?'

It’s no secret that helping to create a sense of well-being in your community is the key to a happy neighborhood. However, fewer Americans are taking time to engage with their neighbors. This recent survey from Zebra backs up the statement. It found that a majority of Americans aren’t friends with their neighbors in real life. In fact, only 33% of Americans consider their neighbors friends or close friends, whereas 66% consider their neighbors strangers or acquaintances. Americans in the Midwest region are most likely to be friends with their neighbors.

Meanwhile, some experts argue that online neighborhood groups are replacing face-to-face communication. For example, Neighborhood-based site Nextdoor has 236,000 active neighborhoods throughout the world. It reaches 90% of U.S. neighborhoods, and is worth an estimated $2.1 billion. Zebra’s survey also showed that almost a third, 27% of Americans are in online neighborhood groups. Moreover, women are 10% more active in these online communities.
Another study was run by NextDoor in conjunction with Brigham Young University in the United States, University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, and Swinburne University of Technology In Australia, and conducted by a team of leading loneliness experts. They found that knowing as few as 6 neighbors reduces the likelihood of feeling lonely and is linked to lower depression, social anxiety, and financial concerns related to COVID-19.
