White Pages Neighbors provides a map-based view of your neighborhood with the names and phone numbers appearing on top of the houses that surround you. This interactive map-based view launched this summer, with the goal of creating closer community ties through the interactive exploration of your neighborhood. As related by the company’s launch message, we know our neighbors more by their cars or by their pets more than by their kids.
The service is being touted as a way of getting knitting closer community connections, such as organizing a group block party, as well as for emergency contacts. It’s also useful as a reminder of your neighbors names.
