Yahoo! Local launched “Neighbors,” with a number of smart features. It has all the basics such as categories: “business recommendations, environment, and kids and schools, and a topic search engine”. Topics can be filtered by location and sorted by either Most Recent or Most Active. Users can sign up for email updates of all activity in their area, even without participating. There’s also a comprehensive RSS feed for each area, separate feeds for each category, and even RSS for each topic. You can also send any topic to a friend via email. Neighbors alos offers a print-quality, PDF “flyer” customized for every town that can be downloaded and shared around the neighborhood.
