Several initiatives to connect neighbours exist, both online and offline. This is a good thing and indicates a need and desire for local community cohesion.
As we cannot speak for other platforms, we'll list what it is that makes Hoplr special.
- It's the first social network (that we know of) that is completely free of advertising.
- Hoplr is European, which means that we have to be conform to European GDPR.
- Hoplr collaborates with local governments and public services, which means that it helps you stay informed about important news from your physical environment (road works for instance) and allows you to take part in citizen engagement opportunities.
