Gogobot iPhone app taps Facebook timeline

GogobotGogobot is a trip-planning travel site with a social element that allows users to get advice from people they trust, not from anonymous strangers on the internet. Now, Gogobot has a new iPhone travel app that integrates with a user’s Facebook Timeline

“Our travels serve as bookmarks in our lives that evoke memories and feelings of friends, family and experiences. The places we go and the things we see say a lot about who we are as individuals. By integrating with Facebook’s Timeline, Gogobot makes it possible to integrate the stories of your travels into the greater context of your life,” said Travis Katz, CEO of Gogobot.

The new Gogobot app lets friends turn to one another for travel advice and share trip plans, photos, recommendations and personal travel guides on their Facebook Timeline. Simplifying the Timeline process, users can add their travel content to their Facebook Timeline from within Gogobot.

“Gogobot is proud to be one of the first travel companies featured in Facebook’s launch: this highlights how travel has become a core social behavior and how Gogobot is leading the category,”said Katz.
All popular features on Gogobot are now a part of Timeline, making it easy for Gogobot members to harness the power of the social graph to create travel experiences and memories.

Right now, from their Gogobot profile, users can opt-in to add Gogobot to their Timeline on Facebook, allowing you to share and feature all of your travel activity, including:

  • An interactive map of all of the places you’ve visited
  • Upcoming trip plans and questions
  • Your favorite destinations
  • Your Travel Expertise score and badges
  • Customized postcards taken with Gogobot’s iPhone application
  • Links to your Gogobot reviews
  • Places you want to visit
  • About Gogobot
  • Gogobot is the world’s largest social travel site.

Gogobot has helped millions of consumers to create, share and enjoy extraordinary travel experiences. As a result, Gogobot has attracted global partners – including Expedia, Hotels.com, Kayak and Priceline – that enable users to book their travel directly from the site. Gogobot is available on the web, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

If you don’t like the Facebook Timeline feature, you’re REALLY not going to like this but heavy Timeline users love it.
