Social Road Trip

Though some consider social media to be nothing more than trivial status updates or exhaustive photo sharing, others find it to be a resourceful tool for daily tasks. A great way to utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and other mobile apps is for road trips.

Take Foursquare for example, a GPS-based app on smart phones which allows users to “check-in” at a destination. This check-in feature can ultimately lead to finding great travel discounts—hotels, restaurants, and retailers sometimes offer loyalty deals for travelers often checking in at their business. The app also offers lots of tips and lists of what’s nearby.

People love sharing, that’s what social media is about—Twitter reigns in this arena of quick public messages via their tweets. Twitter has become a great resource for finding deals on airfare, hotels, and more as those businesses tweet special deals to their followers.

With so many apps out there, you’re bound to run into a couple travel ones. These social network apps help you plan your trip from beginning to end—providing tips on travel routes, highway stops, hotels, entertainment, and more.

So the next time you’re planning a road trip, consider ditching the map and let social media help you out.
