Find Roommates Among Friends Of Facebook Friends

Looking for a roommate? Facebook can help, thanks to startup Friends with Rooms.

Like the name suggests, Friends with Rooms is a listing service for available rooms.

The app uses Facebook’s social graph to match up potential roommates with friends in common, believing this will lead to matches of people with more in common with each other, as well as giving each one the chance to ask their mutual friend or friends about the other.

The application can only be accessed via Facebook, and matches and listings are only provided where there are friends in common.

Readers: Would you be more comfortable becoming roommates with someone whom you share at least one friend with?
