Members of the Couchsurfing community engage in nuanced negotiations over access to physical spaces and social interaction as visitors (couchsurfers) are welcomed to stay in the homes of hosting participants (hosts) (see, e.g., Bialski, 2012a).
The article builds on this potential by reporting on an interview study of how multiperson households, including both self-defined domestic partnerships and sets of loosely connected housemates, regulate access to their domestic sphere as they offer to host couchsurfers. The analysis focuses on how members of these groups regulate both their collective privacy boundaries and the personal boundaries of their members as they engage in this peer-to-peer exchange activity where hospitality is offered via a networked platform to strangers who are known in an informational sense through their online profiles yet unknown in a conventional social sense.

There are just under 2 million couchsurfers worldwide, representing 238 countries and 73,000 cities, and to many "fun and sun" tourists coming to Beirut this summer, the prospect of high accommodation rates at hotels and hostels can also be slightly off-putting, which leads them to look for cheap alternative shelter.
Both couchsurfers advised those interested in being hosted at someone's house to check the person's profile to see the feedback that other couchsurfers gave.
