TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site*, today announced it has acquired Where I’ve Been, LLC, a leading travel website and social platform with a detailed interactive world map that lets users share where they’ve been, lived, and want to go. Where I’ve Been is based in Chicago, Illinois and was founded by Michael Dalesandro and Craig Ulliott.
Where I’ve Been® allows users to share their world map on social networks and interact with like-minded users. Its Facebook application has allowed 10 million people to create color coded travel maps, “pinning off” close to half a billion places. Members can also upload stories and photos, source the community for answers to travel questions, and browse the “Travel Guide” which displays socially relevant information first. This acquisition underscores TripAdvisor’s continued focus and growth in social travel.
The entire product team at Where I’ve Been will join TripAdvisor.
Terms of the acquisition will not be disclosed.
