Mobile app Airbnb and Facebook have partnered to facilitate rental searches through your social network, and Facebook’s social graph. Airbnb has added a new filter, named Social Connections, which allows users to identify personal connections in any city on the map. The filter will return places available for rent that have a link between the user and host through a Facebook connection – be they direct Facebook friends, hosts who are friends or friends or who went to school together. Social Connections will also feature any reviews or past visitation history from your Facebook friends and Airbnb employees.
