Mementos are unique collections of images, videos, comments, and more. The individual memento page showcases an overview of its content, while the detailed view provides further information about group members, timestamps, and comments.
The Explore tab also encourages users to browse, interact with, share, and take inspiration from other Airbnb users adventures around the globe. Public mementos can create earned trust for local Airbnb hosts, as well foster fond, immersive travel memories. The Favorite tab allows users to save their favorite mementos created by other users on the app.
