Facebook is going hyperlocal with a new feature that appears to be a copycat of the popular community-based social networking app Nextdoor.
Called Neighborhoods, it’s currently being tested in Calgary, Canada, with no word on when or if it would launch widely.
Users turn on their location to see posts, groups, and marketplace items from individuals and businesses in their immediate area, and possibly receive hyperlocal advertising.
You can also create a unique Neighborhood profile by entering your address, allowing you to share details with others nearby without friending them.
According to screenshots tweeted by industry insider Matt Navarra, Neighborhood appears as a tile on the Facebook app, next to Marketplace, Groups, and Friends.
