Let your Facebook friends guide you to your next, exciting vacation spot. On Uptake, login via Facebook and then use their new Travel Q&A feature, picking your place and asking a question like “What should I check out in London?” Uptake gathers information from your Facebook friends so that you can ask questions to only the ones who’ve been there. Using a patent-pending data mining technology, it sifts through your Facebook friends’ photos, status updates and comments to find this info. You can choose to ask your question to all of those people either through a public wall post or a private Facebook message. After you start getting answers from friends, Uptake adds that information to its destination pages and also includes maps and reviews from TripAdvisor. The three year old company has amassed 1.8 million destinations, hotels, and attractions and gets 4 millions visitors to its site each month. Surprisingly, it’s the third most popular search and discovery travel site in the world, behind TripAdvisor and Yahoo Travel.
