Travel and Social Networks are one

The connection between Travel and Social networks is undeniable. Who does not share holiday content? On the one hand, it seems that we have to share a picture or a tweet to enjoy our free time nowadays. We are having a good time but we decide to share it instead of really enjoy it. In fact, we are sometimes getting out of our minds. On the other hand, companies in the tourism industry are increasingly using social networks as a tool to connect with their users and followers. It is the example of Lonely Planet and its campaign #Bestintravel.
