TripAdvisor Trip Friends Boosts Facebook's Travel Jump

Eyebrows were raised a little when Facebook announced a new feature where users can become a "travel expert" of sorts earlier in the month. Now, brows may be furrowing as TripAdvisor has launched TripAdvisor Trip Friends, a new service on Facebook that lets users share travel tips with friends.

Users who sign in to TripAdvisor using Facebook will see lists of destinations and attractions their friends have already visited and, perhaps, said friends' take on said destinations and attractions. The information comes from TripAdvisor's "Cities I've Visited" application on Facebook.
