Travel, Twitter and you

When you’re on vacation, do you spend your free time staring down at a smart device? Do you Tweet, update Facebook or blog about what’s going on?

According to Newton-based TripAdvisor, the majority of people do. And there are some very specific reasons.

TripAdvisor this week announced the results of its social media travel survey of more than 1,700 U.S. respondents. The findings reveal a strong correlation between social media and travel, as 76 percent said they share travel experiences via social networks.

Forty-two percent use social channels for travel planning while 40 percent do so for travel inspiration.  Sixty-four percent most often refer to a travel research site such as TripAdvisor for travel inspiration.

What Travelers Share
Photo sharing is the most popular pursuit for those using social channels, as 91 percent of respondents are posting photos of their vacations.  Fifty-seven percent post status updates, and 34 percent use “check-ins” while traveling.

During a trip, travelers most often “check-in” when arriving at their hotel (27 percent), a landmark/attraction (25 percent), or a restaurant (19 percent).

When Travelers Share
Sharing trip details is popular on the road and at home.  While 39 percent usually share travel experiences on social channels following their trip, 52 percent said they share trip details both while traveling and after returning home.

Despite the popularity of social channels, a scrapbook or photo album remains the most popular choice for documenting extended trips, according to 49 percent.

Why Travelers Share
The primary reason travelers share their trip experiences on social networks is to update friends and family on their whereabouts, according to 36 percent and 27 percent noted the fun to share all their exciting photos and news. Thirty-seven percent think social networks have made travel planning easier.
