Check Out Real-time Airbnb Activity with This Interactive Online Globe

Following the One Less Stranger campaign, Airbnb announced that on New Year's Eve, 550,000 travelers used Airbnb.

The company marked this occasion by designing an interactive map that showcases Airbnb activity around the globe with real-time action illustrated in motion from #OneLessStranger movement, global hotspots, guest check-ins, and recent milestones including a most recent one on New Year’s Eve.

The map displays travelers checking in on Airbnb all over the world, along with other interesting activity. Not only does it show real-time activity of Airbnb's pay-it-forward "social challenge", but it also provides an exciting new way to share data. 

Within the map, you can click to see activity around the #OneLessStranger campaign and click on the designated icons to see what the community is doing with the challenge. 

Andrew Schapiro, Head of Art Department, said: “Part of the challenge of building this experience was thinking through how we can marry the scale of Airbnb experiences happening around the globe with the nature of these experiences. The connections people are making are deeply human and personal. So we decided to take a somewhat whimsical and playful approach with the map, bringing live through figures and geographic elements that represent the diversity of the planet.”
