The future 2012 BeNeighbors.org stand alone directory website primary goal is:

  • Help people find nearby neighborhood/community online groups

An [858 estimated 20 million adult American Internet users have joined a neighborhood e-mail list or forum and/or a social network site group connected to community issues (10.5% of adult Internet users total)]. The long-term goal of this site is to double the number of American "joiners" to 40 million.

The secondary goal is to:

  • Promote the spread of online neighbor by connecting emergent community leaders to the advice and tools required to successfully host online neighborhood exchange and engagement online

BeNeighbors will make it easy to discover and join such local online groups online NOT just via the typical (yet powerful) word of mouth route.

The concept will be piloted in St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota as part of the Knight Foundation funded Inclusive Community Engagement Online initiative. E-Democracy will take information from this start-up directory and make it available
