While most Neighbourly members choose to leave their full address displayed, you do have the option to hide your street number if you wish to. This is a personal choice for each member, but here are a few reasons why showing your full address can improve your Neighbourly experience:
- It helps you know who your neighbours are - and vice versa! By sharing your street number you're able to show your neighbours that you're living right next door which is the first step in creating closer neighbour-to-neighbour connections. You can say hi to "Bob from number 3" and "Barbara from number 18" just by checking who lives where in the Neighbours Directory.
- It helps kickstart connections. Sharing a little information with a few people in your suburb is a great way to start building connections. Plus, we like to think that sharing more with your neighbours means you'll have a whole community of neighbours watching your back in return.
- It tackles community disconnectedness. Neighbourly has been set up to tackle the tough challenge of building connections with people in our own neighbourhoods. These days, one of the biggest challenges facing our communities is that we no longer know who lives where - even those living right next door!
