It’s a well known fact these days that social media is having an ever-increasing influence on our daily lives. This is even extended into the ways we travel.

  • I expect the fact that so many Americans vacation in their own country and therefore don’t incur roaming charges helps their mobile/ social usage. Will be intersesting to see whether the capped charges in Europe have a similar effect. Presumably mobile operaters will want to boost usage and run some campaigns to inform travellers but are governments also getting involved?

  • Great infographic that speaks to the importance of not only social media, but having a mobile app for your business.
