There are several technologies, social networks and mobile apps for those who enjoy travelling and getting to know well different destinations. One of the most popular ones that has been mentioned in prestigious mass media like TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian or USA Today is Gogobot.
What is Gogobot?
Gogobot is a social network for travel. Each user has its own ‘Passport’, which works as their profile on Gogobot. On there, we have a map of the places we have visited, recommendations we have made, our followers, the people we follow, photos we have uploaded, badges we have obtained, etc.
Gogobot allows us to plan our trips, create postcards of our holidays, read and write reviews of the destinations, restaurants, hotels, etc, make enquiries or ask for advise to other users of around the world, check photos of different places… and the share it on Facebook or Twitter so that our friends and followers can see it. In this way, we will also be able to send a private message to a friend on Gogobot that will be received in the Facebook inbox.
This social travel service was launched in the USA in November 2010, and the mobile app for iPhone was available in the App Store in October 2011. This application covers today over 66,000 touristic destinations. In May 2012, they surpassed the million users. Moreover, due to its great success (they have raised 19 million dollars) and to strengthen their expansion in Europe, they have opened an office in London.
