Neighbourhoods is an answer to the question “who controls my social feed in web3?”
Their social sensemaking tools allow groups to customize how reactions such as likes, upvotes, and content moderation flags are weighted and used to control the display of users’ feeds or other contexts like the front page of a site — whether its filled with posts, songs, poll proposals, or any other digital resource appropriate to that group. Rather than a blackboxed algorithm and corporate content moderators, communities get to set their own rules, fit to purpose.

Neighbourhoods is also developing methods to transfer data and reputation between communities, helping them translate meaning between cultures.
