Couchsurfing and Community Utilization


Couchsurfing is a community of over 5 million members in 97,000 cities — and every country — around the world. Their website connects travelers and locals who meet offline to share cultures, hospitality and adventures – whether on the road or in their hometowns.

Their Mission is simple: Create inspiring experiences.

They envision a world where everyone can explore and create meaningful connections with the people and places they encounter. Building meaningful connections across cultures enables them to respond to differences with curiosity, appreciation and respect. The appreciation of diversity spreads tolerance and creates a global community.

At the Couchsurfing headquarters in San Francisco, they are working tirelessly to create the greatest possible online platform for their community to achieve its goals.

They keep on updating what the provide to their community, for example they will push out more changes to the Place Pages including a list of upcoming events which will replace the Activities map. They will continually update the Place Pages as we move features to their new technology stack.

It is a great example of how a business can create successful communities and having all members engaged and active to gain benefits.

Thank you
