Shareable Service

Consumers willingly trade in private services for communal experiences

Implications - As a desire for cost-conscious living rises, companies are adapting their services to provide consumers with economic alternatives through sharing. Offering consumers the chance to split taxi fares and reduce hotel rates, retailers are encouraging buyers to share typically private experiences with others. This not only helps to reduce overall costs, but serves to heighten typically solitary experiences with a social aspect.
