About a month ago I came across a site called ShareTraveller while looking for information about swaps. There was a story about how some home swap networks expose their members' details to the public. http://sharetraveler.com/home-exchange-networks-exposing-your-information/ It really struck a chord with us as we specifically do not reveal addresses until an exchange is agreed and we don't show unavailable calendars until a person joins and logs in. I struck up a conversation with Dawn, the author of the blog, and she interviewed me for a review of this site. Last week the review was published:...Afficher plus

You might notice that on each listing we keep the number of views. That's the number of times that someone has opened your listing page. But you might also notice that some have thousands of views. How does that happen? In a word, Facebook. (And photos, but that's two words). We promote all our new listings on Facebook as soon as they come in. Our Facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/peoplelikeus.world. That will usually bring quite a few views but that isn't everything. It's one thing for us to advertise your listing but another thing entirely if you do. Most of the really popular listings have been advertised separately on the member's...Afficher plus

We have a long list of "things to do" here at People Like Us. We have things that we've thought of, things that have come to us from reviewers (looking at you, http://sharetraveler.com) and many ideas that have come to us from our members. One such idea came to us from John (https://peoplelikeus.world/properties/360 .. check it out, truly spectacular). He said that he had an offer from another member and, while he couldn't say 'yes' right away, wanted to say that it was of interest. Based on that idea, we've introduced a "Considering" status for a booking. Press this button...Afficher plus
