Let there be likes!

Yesterday we released the Feed and first position was quickly snapped up by John & Lyn in Wales. If you fancy a white Christmas this year in the UK, and who wouldn't, take a look! And today, you can "like" their post! We've added "Like" buttons to the bottom of each post so you can show your appreciation. I know some of you have very specific dates and places you want to travel so please post on the Feed: Comments are coming soon!

Fancy Christmas in the UK

We have 75 successful exchanges behind us and are now planning our next. We have the summer of 2019 already sorted but are looking to be away between November 2018 and February 2019. Ideally we are keen on South East Asia, but could be persuaded to visit Australia or New Zealand again Get in touch if you fancy a simultaneous exchange from 3 to 8 weeks in length Lyn and John

Be the first to write something on our feed

Regular readers will know that my Blog is used to circulate information and to promote new and feature listings. Well, today we're renaming it the Feed and opening it up to all our members. A lot of people have very specific home swap needs. For example you might really want to travel to Spain but you can only travel in August. You can put that information in your personal description right now, but it's not very proactive and people may not see it. The Feed is more like Facebook. Use it to advertise your property. Use it to see who wants to come to Puglia. Use it to say you really want to go to Canada and are happy to swap with anyone there. Tell a story about a recent swap, or use it for anything you want! You can even add an image to dress up your post. Occasional posts wi...

How responsive are you at People Like Us?

We've introduced a new feature at People Like Us to show how responsive a member is to booking offers. The response rate can be seen at the bottom of the property card on the main screen. It is calculated as a percentage of the bookings to which the member has responded for that property e.g. 80%. If your response rate is below 100% it means that you have a booking offer to which you have not responded. If you receive a booking offer, you can accept or reject the offer or mark it as Considering, meaning that you may accept at a later time. It's important though that you respond to offers as a member has shown genuine interest and they are waiting for a response. We have also introduced reminders to let you know if you have an offer to which you haven't responded. Just pop in...
