Nabo has been purpose-built to be specific to your local area, giving you a directory of your neighbours and local businesses, and a diary of local events.THEY are the people we live close to, share facilities with, and perhaps even wave tooccasionally.
But how many of us really know the people in our neighbourhood?
Nabo founder Adam Rigby remembers growing up in a neighbourhood where all the kidshung out together and the families often gathered together for barbecues.
“Talking to people now, it is happening less and less,” Mr Rigby said. “It’s such a shame asthere are so many benefits from having a tightknitcommunity.”
The founder of Nabo, a new social media tool that connects people in real terms, said hewas aiming for the venture to become the third social network in Australia.
“You have Facebook for your friends and family, LinkedIn for your career, and Nabo for yourlocal community,” he said.
