Social travel planning site Gogobot is to show users’ Facebook Places and Foursquare check-ins to help travellers keep their social media friends and followers up to date.
The new feature combines with the site’s current offering to allow users to plan vacations with friends and then share their adventures in real time.
The addition of the check-in feature will also help Gogobot users assess reviews of restaurants, hotels or other businesses by indicating whether or not the author has actually been there.
At present, users have added more than 300,000 places they have visited and/or written reviews. As these numbers grow, Gogobot may be able to begin recommending more travel based on check-ins, and provide other smart services to make users’ travel planning experience more enjoyable.
