The variety of active users increased 80 percent every week between February to March as individuals wanted to link more, like using to get groceries or medication for neighbors, to share materials, or walk people’s pets– and even intel on where to find limited items like bathroom tissue. The hyperlocal app continues to play a significantly important role in the neighborhood, as does CEO Sarah Friar’s leadership for the fast-growing company.
