The Partnership between TripAdvisor and Facebook

TripAdvisor and Facebook are now connected, which allows people to ask for recommendations from Facebook friends without leaving TripAdvisor. For example, when people search for information about a place at TripAdvisor.com, their Facebook friends who grew up, have visited, or live in the destination will show up in a tab. Through this tab, people can post questions on their friends’ Facebook wall or ask them private questions without leaving TripAdvisor.com. Friends’ Responses will be saved in a special folder at TripAdvisor.com.

This app is part of Facebook’s social networking evolution. After Facebook introduced a “plug-in” function, within two months, more than 200,000 websites have implemented Facebook app. TripAdvisor is the most visited travel website in the world, with 34 million monthly visitors. Many Facebook users have already used "Cities I Have Visited" app on Facebook. The partnership between these two websites will benefit both parties. After Sheraton and TripAdvisor, which hospitality company will be the next?
