There were two components to my methodology; a content analysis of Nextdoor posts, and a corresponding survey that I distributed via Nextdoor. These two methods were aimed towards answering the question: What kinds of interactions are taking place between neighbors, and are they helpful or harmful in creating social capital? The qualitative analysis sought to determine the main themes of interaction. The survey was a way for Nextdoor users to self-report, so I used it as a way to compare my own observations with the users’ perceptions. I designed the survey to gauge the possibility of Nextdoor being a virtual third place and as an extension, a place for neighbors to build social capital. After Portland experienced some severe winter weather, arguably a small-scale disaster that shut down the city for several days, I decided to perform a second analysis to see what role Nextdoor played in facilitating connection.
