This social network for buildings allows urban residents to communicate with each other and get organized. MyCoop (pronounced my koop, not co-op) is a free network that lets members to swap services, send important updates and exchange other important information.

Created by Alex Norman, the social network for buildings helps city dwellers to define themselves in a more narrow way than just their neighborhood. It also gives users the opportunity to take some control back from negligent landlords and building managers, especially if there are necessary repairs that need completing. MyCoop would come in handy during an emergency situation as well.

This format is more interactive than slips of paper being shoved underneath doors and gives tenants a chance to engage in discussion and participate in polls.
