During the last years, the Sharing Economy with its prominent trailblazers like Airbnb and Uber has become ubiquitous in our daily lives, enabling us to enjoy new and less expensive means of transportation, accommodation, and other goods and services. With the increasing success comes an increasing headwind from the media, unions, and legislators, claiming negative impacts like precarious employment situations or the promotion of tax evasion. These circumstances provide an uncertain environment for researchers or practitioners developing new sharing services. Conducting a systematic literature review, a comprehensive overview of claimed positive and negative impacts of the Sharing Economy is given. Based on this overview, guidelines are derived that are supposed to help address these issues during the development of the new sharing services and underlying information systems.
