Casahop, a recently launched space exchange platform, enables users to swap their homes and save on accommodation expenses while traveling. Yet unlike other home exchange websites, on Casahop it's your existing social media network - not strangers - that serves as your Casahop community.
Users sign up with their Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts, so home exchanges are made within your online community: you know who you're exchanging homes with. If you're the host, you can rest assured your house is in good hands. If you're the guest, you're comfortable knowing who you're dealing with. 
Current listings feature homes from Sydney in Australia to Orvieto in Italy - and many more locations in between. [Source: Casahop]
