The social travel storm continues to brew. The latest contender, Uptake, launched yesterday their Travel Q&A product;
a new social travel service that uses the latest in web technology to help consumers create their ideal vacation with trusted recommendations from their Facebook friends and the most relevant information from across the web.
Using its patent-pending destination mining technology, Uptake's new Travel Q&A gathers information from users' Facebook friends to create a personalized social travel experience. This new service analyzes both friends' explicit location data, such as hometowns and check-ins, as well as friends' less-obvious, implicit location data, which contains nearly 70% of friends' destinations in the form of photos, status updates, and comments. It also allows users to browse, select, and ask specific friends about destinations and activities, and organize the advice they receive.
