Shared Moments of Sociality: Embedded Sharing Within Peer-To-Peer Hospitality Platforms

We investigate how the notion of sociality is shaped through the prevailing context. Using a multi-sited collection of qualitative data, we compare shared moments in peer-to-peer hospitality platforms in a market versus a non-market environment and conclude that sociability comes closest to prototypical sharing when it is perceived as autotelic.
