Social distancing isn’t a lot of fun. You want to feel safe but not limited. You and people around the world are experiencing this new dilemma brought on by unusual circumstances. For those who want to be responsible and proactive, this article may offer the solution you’ve been looking for.
Do You Know Your Neighbors?
You may be seeing more of your neighbors than usual. Some are familiar faces, and you’ve probably noticed a few new ones. Do you know their names? Maybe some. Do you follow them on social media? Probably not. In times of crisis, expanding your support network is a great idea. That could mean learning about important alerts, or maybe you’re short on toilet paper. Now is the time to connect with your neighbors responsibly and enrich your local community with feelings of safety and well-being.

How Connections Motivate Community Action
Short on paper towels? Toilet paper? How about wine? If you’re lacking in certain supplies, tools, or ingredients, a generous neighbor may be happy and willing to help out.
In uncertain situations, people tend to be more eager to help than usual. Doing favors for those around you creates a sense of community purpose. You’ll be surprised what happens when you break the ice.
To get started, here are some ideas on how to connect.
- Drop off some supplies or ingredients you don’t mind sharing on your neighbor’s door. Include a note with “BeApp,” so they know how to connect.
- Leave a message in your apartment office, local bulletin board, or mailbox area about how people can connect with you through BeApp.
- Post a social media status that you are now on BeApp
- Replace exchanging contact information with sharing the app (you “ll exchange phone numbers and more)
- When you’re out for a stroll, mention BeApp as a way to keep in touch
Most people are just waiting for someone to initiate and show they care. And unlike giving out a phone number, you remain in control of your privacy, what you social media profiles you beam, and when your information is broadcasted.
BeApp’s creators meant to offer you a way to enrich your social connections with privacy and security in mind. It’s time to make better local connections. Download the app and be discoverable today!
