The new feature allows users to share their adventures in a format rich with color and context – an enhanced scrapbook for the digital age. Users can share their photos, reviews and other details about the places they stayed, dined, and traveled from the Gogobot site. The new Collections layout also allows users to seamlessly integrate their activities from other social media sites – including their check-ins on Facebook and Foursquare – and professional photos from Gogobot. All of these elements are packaged into pages about each place, allowing friends to learn more about your trip , see a map of where you were when you caught that sunset, or even make a reservation at the hotel where you stayed. These elements are presented in a clean and elegant format with an interactive map that allows users to share vacations with their social networks in a streamlined, beautifully packaged layout, while making it easy for friends to use this information to plan their own trips.
"Why waste time uploading dozens of untagged, uncaptioned photos? Now you can share all your favorite places and memorable moments in rich detail in half the time. Gogobot’s Travel Collections let you show off the most memorable moments from your trip and helps friends plan their next trip, too," said Katz.
Collections are available as a free feature on Gogobot.com.
Examples of the Collections:
In just seven months since its public launch, Gogobot users have shared more than 600,000 destinations across the globe with their networks on Gogobot. The site won the prestigious 2010 Crunchie Award for best design, and, with more than 100,000 high resolution images, it offers one of the richest collections of travel photos on the internet.
