What is niriu?
ANSWER niriu is a platform, which enables mutual support in neighbourhoods. Here you can find online people from your neighbourhood and interact with them in the real world, by sharing stuffs, undertaking actions together or sharing advises.
What do I get being on niriu?
ANSWER Whether it’s about lending utensils, give piano lessons or practice sport together – with niriu, you can use the huge potential of your neighbourhood and make a contribution yourself. The aim of niriu is to make the first move toward our neighbours and lay the foundation for a real sense of community. And each of us has something to bring!
But should the mutual support not take place outside in the real world?
ANSWER You are right with that. But since we often lack of time, don’t dare or don’t want to disturb the neighbour, just a very few of us come to the idea of spontaneously ringing the neighbour’s doorbell. And because of that, we miss the chance to meet new people and benefit from the huge potential, which stays in front of our door. With niriu we can get a first impression of our neighbours and arrange a meeting with them, depending on the matter. This doesn’t only make us save some time but also enables us to do the first move online in order to break the ice in the real world.
Are they not existing platforms, which aim to achieve the same as niriu?
ANSWER Most of the existing internet platforms stand for online entertainment or exchange within an existing circle of friends. The purpose of those platforms is not to meet the neighbours in real. niriu provide the perfect frame: neighbours can get to know each other online and get in touch together in the real world.
Can I sell my stuff or propose services with costs?
ANSWER No. niriu should facilitate the exchange between neighbours and through small actions increase the contact in neighbourhoods. For professional services or sells, we recommend the use of other specialized platforms. The niriu team reserves the right to remove any content, which doesn’t comply with those rules.
