The idea is to post your travel dreams and experiences to your Timelines using these Facebook apps and to share them with your Facebook Friends.
In addition to travel, Facebook also gave users the ability to add Facebook apps for music, news, giving, food, shopping and fashion, fitness and entertainment to their Timelines, which is Facebook’s new user profile format.
The idea, of course, is to build traction for Facebook through apps from some high-profile brands and to let them, in turn, be more social and market themselves further on the social network.
Facebook users can add apps here.
For example, you can add the Where I’ve Been app to your Facebook Timeline and create a map pinpointing the cities you’ve visited in France or those on your bucket list. You can then post your Where I’ve Been map to your Facebook Timeline and have your friends comment or make suggestions.
Facebook notes in a blog post that you can do similar things with the TripAdvisor and Gogobot Facebook apps, and you can also record your condo rental or room rental activities using the Airbnb Facebook app.
With Wipolo’s Facebook app, you can organize your travel itineraries and share them with friends and associates.
Facebook apps aren’t as ubiquitous as iPhone apps, but maybe one day they will get there.
