Here’s a video about an organization that leverages the power of online social networking in order to make carpooling easier, safer, and more convenient. If you need a ride somewhere or if you’re looking to cut down on the cost of a trip, check out Zimride, which recently partnered with Zipcar to offer its services to colleges and universities.
The first minute of the video is a rudimentary history lesson about the origins of Facebook. Get to 01:25 and you’ll meet the developer of the Zimride Carpool application, Logan Green, who will tell you all about how he started the online carpooling network. Also hear from Facebook user, named “Tam,” who will show you how he uses the application to find a ride into downtown Los Angeles.
