The new Facebook applications feature allows people to add all sorts of functions to the website. One interesting one that we’ve seen is the Carpooling add-on. Users can post their journeys, where they become searchable. People can then get in contact and arrange car-shares.
Rodney Rumford from FaceReviews, said, « I spoke with the developers tonight and they informed me that the application works not only in the US, but in Canada and England as well. Smart! It also ties into your myspace account as an option. There are even more enhancements on the board that will be released in the near future. If you are into carpooling, this is application right up your alley, so give it a try. » It’s a wonderful system, but the problem is that everytime a new website crops up, it theoretically makes it harder to find lifts. It dilutes the possible lift shares amongst more sites. Hopefully one site will emerge as the most popular, and car-pooling can really become mainstream.
