    I used to rely on Yelp to get to know a place, now i meet people through this.(Tinder is not the type of relationship i look for).


    I am not fan of the Couchsurfing philosophy, thankfully this service is moving away from that into a Network to meet people.

    Knowing a new country or city is something that I love, sadly cannot do it as much as i would love. Its a completely different the experience when you know someone and this is the simplest way i know to do it, facebook groups used to be useful but every time i get into them they feel like a flea market, everyone selling their own stuff

  • Pros: 

    You can connect with people around the world, using your or your friends network, which is awesome, secure. Communities are a plus!


    It can be improved if we all spread the voice and the map will be full of new connections!

    I think the best part is that you can connect with your friend's network, so you can rely on that relationship and the experience with that person will be better. Communities are awesome, they let you connect to people that it's difficult in other way.

Thanks for hunting us @adrienm ! I'm Carlos, one of the founders of Friend Theory and we are very excited to be on Product Hunt today! Our goal at Friend Theory is to inspire and make travel accessible to everyone. Traveling helps you put life into perspective and opens your mind to what the world is like outside of your comfort zone. We hope that by connecting you to your friends of friends and likeminded people around the world, we will break down the barriers of traveling. Fear of the unknown is one of the biggest travel barriers and through Friend Theory we are making it much easier to get on a plane knowing that you have a friend when you touch down. We are a very passionate group of friends working on this, in fact we spent 40 days around Europe staying with friends of friends testing an early version of the concept, and have been evolving the concept to a more social product ever since! I'd love to hear your thoughts, and if you have any questions or feedback feel free to email me at
