Nextdoor's app promotes kindness in neighborhoods

The Next Door app is trying to promote kindness.

The San Francisco-based app is rolling out what they're calling a "kindness reminder."

It's a new feature encouraging positivity among neighbors who connect on the platform.

Essentially it's a prompt to remind a member to reconsider their post if it's potentially offensive or hurtful.

In testing, one in five people edited their comment before posting.
