Users can decide into Social Links to much more conveniently find places to rent from hosts that are direct Facebook pals, hosts who are close friends of pals or hosts that share the same alma mater as they do. Airbnb customers can also obtain a quick look at whether a Facebook buddy has actually reviewed a host, in addition to perspective the locations that Airbnb workers have actually stayed at or reviewed.
