In the area of the reinforced concrete world, neighborhood social relations more and more strange, more and more tend to disappear, the edge of disappeared but the relationship is not possible.
however, Diana li think Internet veterans, 13 years “better good neighbours near than relations far away” has always been the inheritance of Chinese traditional culture, village is the foundation of society, at the same time, people still live in closer. Diana li and his team developed a community based neighborhood social products “near abroad”. Learned, neighbors belonging to pieces by Beijing times network technology co., LTD., co-founder and core team respectively from alibaba, shanda, 58 city and other well-known Internet companies. Diana li also disclosed to hunt cloud network, the company has completed the angel round.
actually speaking, near to the set of functions and its simplicity, from the UI interface mainly presents “near abroad”, a “message taking” feature. Especially near the main map “message”, namely community message board, but in the mobile terminal to move it up, no matter you are not at home you can put your requirements issued by means of “message” to show the surrounding neighbors; Also provide users with the function of “anonymous” message, let something bad to say, speak of the neighborhood can say it without worry.
