The RentCompass Facebook App, allows users to do their houses hunting right on Facebook. Users can use the embedded Google Map to search for rentals, share postings with friends, message them or simply chat with them to ask for opinion. House hunting is a social process by nature, people usually ask their friends or family for advice while house hunting. Traditionally, Facebook share and like buttons are used to help with that, but the RentCompass Facebook app takes that to another level by allowing the users to search for rentals right on Facebook itself.
