Cobbles > Help Center > Using Cobbles
At Cobbles, we believe that re-imagining neighborhoods will boost the way people connect. Our platform is built with the belief that a community is full of great people, places, activities and stories that connect across generations.
Our Core Values
We celebrate stories that help you discover and interact with your neighborhood.
We believe people have become increasingly distant from the news they read, stories & experiences they share and comments they make. Our commitment is to facilitate stories that help you to discover, connect, share, learn or engage within your neighborhood and with each other. We will vigorously protect against any external bad actors attempting to degrade the integrity of your community feed. Only people IN your community will be able to contribute to the topics you share with your neighbors.
We will defend your right to privacy.
We are fiercely protective of your personal data and the experience we want you to have on the Cobbles platform. You, Your Data and Your community are not for sale. ​At any time - you have the ability to delete all of your data from the platform. Forever. We recognize this is not our data, it's yours. We DO NOT allow the use of log-ins from social networks.
We aim to amplify the good in every neighborhood and community.
We founded Cobbles with the belief that every community is full of great people, places, activities, and stories that connect across generations. We salute the mothers, fathers, grandparents, children, families, teachers, artists, coaches, mentors and entrepreneurs who represent your community. It’s your lives that are part of the woven fabric of your neighborhoods.
We aim to give back to each community and to keep our promise to do so.
Our goal is to be a company focused on local social innovation. We are a purpose-driven business focused on local communities that share our success with the people that live in them.
