Lobster Network: A Review

I think that LobsterNetwork has coined a new phrase, "Item Networking."

What is "item networking?"  It's a personal library of your stuff that you can choose to share with others or keep as a private online inventory. 

How LobsterNetwork works (By the way, you can watch a video that explains it all.): 

It's easy. Create friendships with the people you know.

It's fast. Browse your friend’s stuff and request to borrow something.

It's flexible. Approve or reject any request for your stuff.

It's controlled. Decide who sees your stuff. Even create "communities" of friends that only share stuff with each other.

It's helpful. It tracks your stuff on loan and automatically reminds your friends when to return your stuff.

It's secure. Keep a private inventory of your stuff online for insurance purposes. Include pictures too.

It's free. Best of all it's free.

For the visual person, let me provide you with a summary:
So if you don't know what to do with your homeschooling stuff, or you feel guilty about your accumulation of movies and books and want to share, or you simply want a place to keep an inventory of your stuff, then LobsterNetwork might be the solution for you.  It is free.
