Atlanta, GA (Vocus) February 11, 2009
In December of 2008, Alcatraz Media launched TripTalks.com– a brand new way to network with others about positive and negative travel experiences. This free service, which allows users to blog, post photos, and join groups, raises the standard of social networking in the travel sector.
With TripTalks.com, users can actually show the world why they love a particular destination by providing others with all the tools they need before they decide where and when to hit the road. The site provides a huge benefit to consumers because in addition to sharing their personal experiences, they can also make new friends who share common interests, from their favorite little cafe down the street to their preferred travel destinations worldwide.
The site itself boasts a number of on-hand travel experts, each specializing in a specific city. The majority of the locations currently being discussed are situated in the U.S., but the more material users are able to share, the more locations will be added to the growing arsenal of information.
The first step to getting the most out of TripTalks.com is to create a profile. Users can choose to add as much or as little information as they wish, and they can customize the visual appearance of their page as well. A good way to start interfacing with TripTalks.com is to start a group to discuss their favorite locations. They will also be provided with a travel questionnaire to get started in the right direction. This is a great way to meet people while talking about something they enjoy, and since everyone on the site already loves travel, they will be in good company.
The possibilities with TripTalks.com are limitless, and it builds its strength from the contributions of its members. It also interacts nicely with other networking sites, so users can set up an RSS feed for their Facebook page or pull in pictures from their Flickr account to augment their profile.
