Geebo’s philosophy is that the advent of the global electronic community
shouldn’t mean the abandonment of the conventional community. It should
serve as an enhancement.

are provided with a heightened degree of safety and privacy by Geebo’s
practice of manually monitoring every post intended for publication. You
look out for your neighbors. Geebo looks out for you.

120 communities nationwide.
