Airbnb is an application that is hard to believe its successful story. Airbnb had a rough start since the beginning and it went through at least three separated launches. As of May 2018, Airbnb was worth $38 billion, Forbes reports.
Airbnb operates an accommodation marketplace that allows people to list their available living spaces to be leased or rented by users looking for short-term lodging. As Airbnb doesn’t own any property, its growth purely depends on the number of host and visitors as both of them are charged a percentage of the booking cost. Airbnb like many other great applications is restricted by governmental legislation.
Another social media application that is impressive and I find it useful is the Hootsuite. It helps you keep track and manage our social network channels. It enable us to monitor what people are saying about us or about our organization and brand and direct us to respond instantly. On Hootsuite I can manage my Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and read news from different news channels in one place.
Hootsuite is a great tool for small business it allows to post a quick update to multiple Twitter accounts, Facebook profile and page, LinkedIn profile, company page! This feature is great if we want to post urgent messages. Also Hootsuite sends a weekly analytical report include the number of clicks to my website, number of likes and 3 of mentions. I believe social media applications will evolve faster in the near future.
