The growth of web 2.0 and the development of digital technologies have enabled the emergence of online platforms that promote user-generated content, sharing, and collaboration.

Using Airbnb as an example, this essay will begin by exploring the sharing economy. Then, using Airbnb and Couchsurfing as examples, it will look at the gift economy facilitating ‘reciprocity’.
