Social media is a game changer for the travel industry, and Insider Perks will always be an early adopter in order to give our users access to the best tools available.
Avon, OH (PRWEB) April 27, 2010
Insider Perks, the world's first website dedicated to professional unbiased travel video, today announced the completion of its newly redesigned travel website that becomes the first in the travel industry to integrate the new social plugins from Facebook and Twitter in addition to dozens of new interactive features.
The new design offers easy navigation as well as a less cluttered appearance that allows visitors to the site to find what they are looking for quickly and easily. Visitors will also find faster load times for pages and unique features that offer an immersive experience.
Throughout each travel guide, visitors will find strategic placement of new Facebook "Like" plugins that were just announced last week. These social plugins allow them to share their favorite cities instantly with their friends on the world's largest social network.
Visitors will also be able to view popular Twitter travel accounts through the use of Twitter's newly announced @Anywhere service. Without leaving the site, users will be able to follow new people and send tweets about their favorite destinations directly to their social network.
"These new social plugins give our users an additional way to express their preferences, interact with their friends and find answers to almost any question they have," said Brian Searl, founder and CEO of Insider Perks.
In addition to the social plugins, each travel guide provides exclusive travel videos produced or licensed by Insider Perks. The travel guides also integrate live tweets from each city that allow visitors to research their destination while viewing, in real-time, what is happening in each city.
New interactive maps powered by Google allow travelers the ability to search each destination for anything they need, from a hotel for the night or even a nearby restaurant. More prominently featured are links to the newly designed booking engine, powered by Expedia, which allows users to quickly locate a hotel or other amenities in the area with only one click.
"Social media is a game changer for the travel industry and Insider Perks will always be an early adopter in order to give our users access to the best tools available," said Brian Searl, founder and CEO of Insider Perks.
