Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won’t you be my neighbor?

Reneevb Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won’t you be my neighbor?

Given my recent “People” post, you might think I’m nostalgic for old songs. :-) Well, sometimes they’re just the perfect way to capture a sentiment. I loved watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood because his was a neighborhood that was always interesting: It was vibrant, and he had cool guests in his neighborhood who shared new things with me. Of course I wanted to be his neighbor!

That’s exactly the sentiment behind Neighborhoods. They are ideal micro-communities: groups of people centered around a shared passion for particular products or activities. They’re vibrant and interesting because the people who join them want to share new things with each other. In addition to discussion boards, Neighborhoods show you snapshot views of related products - for example, the Harrison Ford neighborhood might show listings for Star Wars or Indiana Jones. They also pull in related reviews, guides, and blog posts. And my favorite: Neighborhood members can vote on pictures submitted by other members.

Watch Nathan Sacco in this video and he’ll tell you more. ...Don’t you think he’d look good in a red sweater?!
