Rent Jungle Press Releases
Posted November 17, 2009
Tracking down your perfect habitat is difficult. Locating a place that appeals to you and the others who might be sharing your space is even more complicated. But Rentjungle.com’s new Apartment Search Facebook App ( http://www.rentjungle.com/facebook/ ), the first of its kind in the industry, lets you take advantage of Rentjungle.com’s revolutionary listing technology and share findings with multiple future roommates without leaving Facebook. No cutting and pasting links into an email. No texting friends and asking them to check out a listing. Your friends get to instantly see what you’re seeing, plus they can interact with your search and make their own recommendations—all on the Facebook site.
“The truth is, most of the time you have several people weighing in on a rental search,” says founder Rick Ferris. “and Facebook is the perfect communication platform for sharing with Friends. We took this reality and let it be our inspiration for making Rentjungle.com even more user-friendly. Facebook Apartment Search ( http://www.rentjungle.com/facebook/ ) is the next generation of apartment hunting”
The new Facebook Apartment Search App (http://apps.facebook.com/rentjungle/ ) integrates seamlessly with other Facebook features. When you find a listing that makes you go wow, you simply click on the “Share on Facebook” button to share it with as many people as you like. You can add your comments, too. And, if necessary, you can insert the email addresses of friends who aren’t on Facebook—if you still happen to have any of those.
“Social media has really changed how people interact on the web. And we’re glad to be the first in our industry to understand this and make use of it,” says Ferris. “We offer something no other apartment listing site does.”

Rentjungle.com, launched May, 2009, is the most comprehensive rental listing site on the web. It works much like other search engines in that it scours the Internet to amass apartment listings from a variety of sites. Unlike other search engines, though, Rentjungle.com specializes only in apartments. Users can search, sort and bookmark individual listings. Plus, users can also view listings on an innovative user-friendly map. Rentjungle.com was founded to fill a void in the online real estate market by offering a simple, easy-to-use directory and one-stop-shop destination for renters.
