Last week I posted about the launch of Travellution, which is a social media that helps people finding other people who have the same travelling dreams you have. So for you, I tried to find more social media dedicated to travelling.
Tripsay: You will find on this network a map of recommended places to go, users leave their comments and say to which level they liked it and why. You can also use it to find new places you had never thought of visiting before and you can use it to find hotels. Tripsay will ask you to signed up and to provide information about yourself so they can recommend places for you to go (accompanied by stories from travellers that were there).
Tripwolf: they provide users with information on more than 50000 destinations. The information is provided by users that were travelling to one or many of these places. They are also partnering with Footprint Travel Guides. By planning your trip with them you have access to some free personal travel guide, which is always a plus. They are really active on blogging also, this is a nice way to get good information about a variety of subject related to travel (tips, coupons, food, etc.).
Lonely Planet: is more of a forum than an actual social media but still it provides a place where people can share information, tips, advice about trips. On the website you start by finding the forum that relates to you the most and then you can read up on what has been posted and ask questions to the other forum members.
Dopplr: is a social media developed so you can share your personal travel plans with people you trust, it will notify you when trips you are planning match and overlap with another friend’s trip, it helps you find cities you didn’t think about visiting, and the social media brings together travellers so they can share tips and advice on travelling.
Here you have it, five new social media to visit when you are planning your next trip!
