As Neighbors Crowd Together, Social Network “My Virtual Neighbor” Reduces Local Crime
Tools

Crowdsourcing solutions to social problems require a different take on what the crowd is. In place of the amorphous global crowd, local crowds can actually be very focused and purposeful. In the case of neighborhoods, crowds can come together for extremely valuable social purposes.

My Virtual Neighbor is the first social network geared around neighborhoods and new research has proven that the service can reduce crime in communities that are "live" on the site by 80% as neighbors crowd together.
 As the first social network service focusing on forming ties and encouraging interactions based on neighbor interest, it helps people who live around each other to get to know each other better, to keep everyone well-informed about what’s going on in and around their neighborhood in real time, and to help them benchmark effective positive actions.
