Neighborhoods is a section of the Facebook app dedicated to a user’s neighborhood. It’s an opt-in experience users can join by creating a Neighborhoods profile which is different from their main profile.
A Neighborhoods profile will pull in the same name, profile photo, and cover photo that’s on a user’s Facebook profile. Users can add other information about themselves such as personal interests, favorite places, and a short bio.
Facebook will ask users to confirm their neighborhood to make sure they really live where they say they do. Users may also join nearby neighborhoods in addition to their own.
