Sidestep and Facebook doing a thing

Social networking phenomenon Facebook just got very interesting for those wondering how travel companies might be able to interact with it.

US travel search engine Sidestep yesterday unveiled a plug-in for members to add their trips, previous and forthcoming, to their homepage.

Users who create a new entry can then invite other Facebook members they know are/were included in the trip to be added, as well as being able to upload photographs and notes.

Sidestep gets a mention and a link on every page associated with the tool.

[Mashable has a list of its Top Facebook plug-ins]

Kev, you've got me addicted to Facebook!

It'll be interesting to see how travel companies interact with members.

I'm doing a few tests myself to see if I can attract visitors to TR
