Marriott Hotels hopes MIT’s Six Degrees app will help guests make special connections | BetaBoston

Sign of the times

"It’s Tinder for the hotel lobby. Well, sort of. The MIT Mobile Experience Lab has built a meetup app for Marriott Hotels so that guests can connect with others in the hotel based on shared personal interests.

And it’s not just for guests. Anyone wondering through the hotel lobby can download it and give it a try. The app mines personal information posted by guests on their LinkedIn profiles and then finds others staying in the hotel with the same likes or similar histories."
