Can It Be True? Nobody Cares About Your Vacation Photos!

Vacation Photos

While traveling, one of the best ways to document a trip is by taking photos. And is there a better way to share details of your trip than by posting vacation photos on social media?

I used to share lots of vacation photos to Facebook but rarely do so anymore. It can be a pain and I also don’t really think about doing it. I think for one trip in the past year or 2, I posted photos since I had free WiFi during the flight home as a way to kill time. (I have been posting photos to Instagram though.)

How about hiring a social media assistant for your next vacation! Continue reading Need A Social Media Travel Assistant?

In my opinion, United Airlines has a pretty weak social media presence compared to rival airlines Delta and American (two of the best at social meida if you ask me). However, it seems like United is starting to take social media a bit more seriously.
United posts to Twitter on occasion but seems to rarely interact with it’s customers or respond to tweets directed towards them. Their tweets often just share news or ask a question which rarely results in a response.
