With the holidays upon us, we’re in a very festive mood here at TripAdvisor this week. In the spirit of the holidays, for you our travelers, we’re excited to deliver an exciting gift. In partnership with Facebook, today we’re thrilled to make TripAdvisor instantly personalized for you!
What is this new gift you ask?
The new integration with Facebook will help you uncover the valuable and trusted advice of your friends when researching vacations on TripAdvisor—from seeing your friends’ travel maps, to their favorite places and even their reviews!
Here’s a peek at it (but also check out TripAdvisor.com to see it for yourself!)
We think this is really cool because we’re making the travel planning process easier, more social and more fun than ever before… but you still may be wondering how all this works.
It’s simple. All you have to do is be logged into Facebook when visiting TripAdvisor.com, and you’ll instantly see your Facebook friends’ recent travel activities, most popular travel destinations on a map, and all the exciting places around the world where your friends have been!
What’s more, you now have three levels of travel inspiration:
• See a map on the homepage revealing where your friends have been, to inspire you to visit a new destination.
• Visit a destination’s tourism page on TripAdvisor to uncover all the valuable, insightful comments written by people you know.
• When researching a particular hotel, restaurant, or attraction, you’ll first see reviews written by your friends about that place.
You can learn more about today’s news on the Facebook Blog and on TripAdvisor.com. We think you’ll enjoy seeing your friends’ reviews and experiences on TripAdvisor, but if at anytime you want to opt-out of instant personalization, you can do so from your Facebook privacy settings page.
We hope you’ll enjoy this new feature and use it to plan your upcoming trips.
