Comment on Social Capital and Trust in the Sharing Economy by Betty Hancock

Your example of services like Lyft and Uber really sticks with me! I would never hitchhike or accept a ride from a stranger, but knowing that the company has performed a background check on their drivers and that other customers have had positive experiences make Uber drivers so so so approachable. I use Uber all the time and never think twice about hoping in a strangers car, but I would never never trust someone to transport me around if I didn’t have that social security blanket.
