Uber will help make friends during rides!

US20190190881A1

When you use carpool services, like Uber Pool, you would encounter complete strangers during rides. These rides may be uncomfortable because of the awkward silence between you and co-passengers. Starting a conversation is also arduous because you are not familiar with them.  It is this very problem that Uber is addressing now.

As per a recently published patent application, Uber has developed a transport arrangement service that is integrated with passengers’ social network profiles, like Instagram® and Facebook®. Uber will match your profile with your co-passengers’ to find common points of interests, including shared hobbies, common friends, common professions, common companies, etc. Further, the common interests will be shared with you and your co-passengers to give you a conversation starter.

With this system, the pool rides will be more enjoyable, and you could potentially make friends during every ride.
