New Survey: Majority of Americans Know Their Neighbors Pets More Than Their Neighbors’ Kids—
Don’t Know Most of Their Neighbors’ First Names, Cell Phone Numbers or Email Addresses

WhitePages “Neighbors” launches today! WhitePages Neighbors is a new free Block Party organizer and contact look up product to help find the names and contact information for neighbors to promote neighborhood spirit, community partnerships and local safety.

Despite the fact that most American adults who have neighbors (93%) say it’s important for neighbors to look out for each other’s safety, a new survey conducted online in June 2011 by Harris Interactive on behalf of WhitePages found that more of them can identify most of their neighbors’ cars (47%) than most of their neighbors’ first names (41%) and that more of them (27%) know most of their neighbors’ pets more than most of their neighbors’ kids (24%). National Night Out is coming up on August 2nd, which 37 million People participated in last year. In partnership with National Night Out, we’d like to help people plan even more block parties this year to help neighbors get to know each other (organize Neighborhood Watch programs, plan block parties, organize play dates, organize garage sales).

The new Whitepages Neighbors product offers an aerial map of U.S. household contact information, including first and last name, mailing address, associated household members, and phone number to help neighbors more effectively get in touch. Going beyond making it easy to look up neighbors’ names and contact information, WhitePages has partnered with the National Night Out (NNO) to make it easy to plan a Block Party within a few clicks without having to worry about tracking down neighbor’s names and contact information by sending personalized postcard invites via the U.S. Postal Service for free.  With the survey discovering that 34% of American adults who have neighbors do not feel comfortable asking their neighbors to keep an eye on their home when they go away, WhitePages and NNO hope people will use “Neighbors” Block Party invites to foster relationships that lead to effective neighborhood watch initiatives that promote local safety.

White Pages Neighbors is here to help us create more unity is our community through block parties and a easy way to connect! With White Pages Neighbors you can plan, organize, locate neighbors you will invite, send invites and even keep track of who used the easy RSVP feature. I just tried it out to see how it would work and it is amazing. I type in my address and it automatically found me! It knew mine and my husband’s name. Then it allowed me to set up a free account and verify my location was correct. They take security very seriously so to ensure your identity, they verify by using your phone number. I had a phone call within seconds and then entered my security code to proceed.  find my neighbors. the set up process was incredibly easy. I typed in the info for the party and then was allowed to send 80 invites for free. It allowed me to click on the homes to invite the people that I wanted. I was able to invite everyone on my street. It did not give me private info. It only told me the neighbors names. I was then able to print and send postcards just like this one for FREE!

I am so excited about this! I am thankful that I live in a smaller community than I great up in. But even so, I do not know all of my neighbors! It is so important that we know the know the ones who live close to us. For the emergencies and the vacations as well as the great things that happen, we need our neighbors. I can’t wait for our block party!

Now I want to hear from you! Have you had a block party? Will you have one now? Does this new system motivate you to throw one?

    Barely know most of their names. We know one set who we knew before we moved here, if that counts, so we are very close with them.

    I know most of my neighbor’s names (not all). I have a great relationship with the neighbors I do know and we really try to look out for each other. We’ve had some especially rough times recently with break-ins on the rise, and it makes me feel better that I have some great neighbors to help look out for me as I do for them.
