Web App Helps Users Sell and Swap Summer Weekends With Friends

Share Article

Building on its success of 2011, SummerTimeShare.com has re-launched as the only online marketplace for Fire Island, Hamptons, and Jersey Shore vacationers. The app, which requires a Facebook account, lets users organize complicated schedules and put weekends up for sale.

A recently re-launched Facebook app called SummerTimeShare.com will let users plan their vacation schedules this summer and look for last-minute availability if they don’t already have plans. The marketplace, which is free to post in, allows people who rent quarter, half, or full shares on Fire Island, in the Hamptons, and at the Jersey Shore to fill their empty slots.

Dozens of individuals who will be sharing a house during the course of one summer will book their time with a complex schedule to do so. As well, many will skip and swap weekends with friends. SummerTimeShare.com is designed for this niche market. It is the first online tool specialized enough to map this style of summering.

With social networking baked-in, users can create listings for available weekends, at no charge, and choose to show those listings publicly or, optionally, only to those they are already friends with on Facebook. Even further harnessing the unique power of the social graph, users can hide a listing from specific Facebook friends if they choose.
“Last year nearly a thousand people used this app,” said Jason Fleetwood-Boldt, the app’s creator. “This year, this is a first-class AJAX-driven user experience, bringing it on par with what’s expected from a modern web application. It’s built flexibly enough to accommodate any schedule that can be thought of. No share has to make their schedule public – the privacy settings are very granular.”

SummerTimeShare launched into a Public Beta period today, March 15th. Just in time, too, with the unseasonably mild winter people’s minds have turned to where they’ll be on the beach this summer. SummerTimeShare puts the last minute buyers in connection with sellers to help make sure that happens.
