Facebook (FB) plans to foster connections on a local level. Neighborhoods is the company's new offering that seeks to enhance connections and interactions between neighbors. The opt-in offering is integrated within the Facebook app. With Neighborhoods, Facebook hopes to bring local experience into one centralized place. The connection enabled by the offering should allow people to offer support, meet, and share a common interest on a local level. To join the service, one only needs to be 18 years or older and confirm their neighborhood. Facebook has also confirmed that people will be allowed to set up their neighborhood profile within the app.
