Gogobot claims it is now the #2 social travel site behind Tripadvisor. The new app, the company says, is meant to provide you with “personalized advice and tools at every phase of your journey, from discovering to sharing and from planning to booking.” According to Gogobot co-founder and CEO Travis Katz, the emphasis in designing the new app was on making it “even more social, as you can follow where your friends and those in your network are traveling and learn if they liked a destination or have specific tips.” (Please Click Here To Read Full Article)
