Fribe is a platform that allows people from outside of NYC to connect with people who share the same taste or lifestyle. Potentially, according to the Fribes that one joins, he or she will be able to find a suitable place to live in NYC. This solves the problem on a physical level. Because they don’t have as many connections and resources, it becomes rather difficult to locate a suitable place for them to live. This leads to a sense of loneliness which is the emotional level of this existing problem. Through syncing the music library or analyzing one’s answers to the questions, Fribe suggests groups of people who might share the same taste and lifestyle for the user, and helps the user locate apartments based on check-ins.
