Friends, the present is an era of internet and social media.Every time when millions of people search on the Internet. Social media has been somewhat of a rash on the internet nowadays. It is one of the top reasons of using internet. Today, most internet users are addicted to various social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google Plus etc. Not only that, today every website is also available in the form of a mobile application, mobile internet access to everyone in recent years is the major cause behind compelling all the social media company to focus heavily on developing the best mobile applications. Today, the world’s most popular mobile messaging application is WhatsApp, I think so.
Now I have to focus on travel-related materials, so today I’ll tell you about a website, which is a boon for nomads, calledCouchSurfing (couchsurfing.com).
CouchSurfing is also a type of networking site, but also across something different. It is mainly designed for travel enthusiasts, but used mainly by high-quality nomads. It just is not very popular in India, but in the West it has earned a significant name.
The website with the help of members of the interplay between host stroller (Hosts) are exchanged. If you create an account for this website, in any corner of the world you can find a host of other member. Suppose you go somewhere, you can find in that city any Couchsurfing member, can connect with the information, and if he likes it, he can allow you to stay with him. Thus a in new place, to stay with local people also feels warm and comfortable too, as well as the money can be saved by avoiding stay in expensive hotels! The website which was launched in 2004, today more than two million of the world’s cities over ten million members are registered.
