US – A popular travel site has launched a new service on Facebook that lets users share travel tips with friends. As reported by AFP, the service launched by TripAdvisor allows Facebook users to get details from their online friends about places they’ve traveled when planning for a vacation.
Steve Kaufer, the founder and head of TripAdvisor, is quoted by AFP as stating of the service, TripAdvisor Trip Friends, “We revolutionized travel planning 10 years ago when we created the site, the next major leap forward is to get advice from your friends… After offering the wisdom of the crowds, TripAdvisor Trip Friends will offer the wisdom of friends.
