Online socialising isn’t new but can it help neighbours to connect in real life?
RightmovePlaces aim is to “help people make their areas a better place by encouraging helpful and informative messages on RightmovePlaces.”
RightmovePlaces founder Marianina Manning comments:
“Rightmove Places is a platform centred around local communities, giving people an online place to share local knowledge or increase visibility for things that are important to them in their local area.”
Often we live in an area for years without actually knowing any of our neighbours or knowing how to tell local people about something we think is important which is where this new way of connecting with neighbours comes in.
So what have neighbours been talking about on RightmovePlaces in the last week and what do people think of the new site?
From Monmouth, Oxford, Cambridge, Middlesborough, Chesterfield and thousands of other areas in the UK, neighbours are sharing their views or asking for help or support from those who live close by….
And, since RightmovePlaces.co.uk launched visits have increased by over 500 times.
To celebrate the launch of the new RightmovePlaces, we’re excited to announce the RightmovePlaces Very Important Neighbour competition.
We want to help people make their areas a better place by encouraging helpful and informative messages and comments on RightmovePlaces. It is also a chance to win £500 for a neighbourhood street party, project or local cause. To enter, all you need to do is create your RightmovePlaces account and add some helpful messages or comments to your area.
