Social Media and Your Vacation
I’m always fascinated by the stats presented in travel infographics and recently one on Vacationing the Social Media Way caught my eye. Some interesting stats on how our travel behavior has changed include:
- 51% of travelers using smartphones used their phones to find information on flights and accommodation, doing everything from checking prices to making the final booking.
- Facebook has become a major go-to online destination for finding more information about places.
- 74% of us can’t bear to be disconnected from social media while we travel and see mobile devices as a great way to keep in touch.
- Many of us use mobile devices/social media to share info on our trips while we’re there or after we get back.
