Public posts are messages that can be seen by people beyond your Neighbourly community - by both Neighbourly members and non-members. Whenever you make a post on Neighbourly you are given the choice to make this a public post.
You might wish to post publicly to:
- Share events such as fundraisers, garage sales, community fairs or school productions you would like to promote far and wide
- Help locate missing pets or items that may have been lost beyond your neighbourhood
- Advertising a house for rent or something for sale
- Share your Neighbourly content via other social media channels / email / newsletter / website
Where are public posts displayed?
Are replies on public posts also public?
No. Only Neighbourly members can see replies. To view replies on a public post, members need to sign in to Neighbourly first. Non-members will need to create an account.
Will a public post share my personal details?
Members beyond your own neighbourhood and non-members will only see your name, suburb and profile picture.
