In mid-2021, Facebook announced that Neighborhoods was being tested in Canada and would soon roll out in the United States. This new feature is a space within the Facebook app, rather than being a separate app, that allows you to join your neighborhood and other neighborhoods nearby. It’s almost like a Facebook account conjoined with a dating profile where you can write posts, have a bio, ask questions and meet new people.
It was designed for people to make connections and stay updated on upcoming events, things happening in their neighborhood, etc. It’s currently being tested in Des Plaines, Iowa.
