TripAdvisor Travel Map going away temporarily

Hi all,

Wanted to give everyone a heads-up:

On Thursday, the Travel Map currently on your TripAdvisor Member Profile will become temporarily unavailable while we work on a new and improved map experience to share where you've been, where you want to go, and favorite cities. Places travelers have pinned on their maps will be saved for when the maps return to member profile pages.

As an alternative to the Travel Map on TripAdvisor, members can view their map and pins on TripAdvisor's Cities I've Visited application on Facebook. Please note that a Facebook account using the same email address is necessary, and users may need to accept permissions if they have not used the application before. apps.facebook.com/tripadvisortravelmap/

Thank you for your patience as we make improvements!

Jeanine,

Good heads up for everyone.

Not sure you will convince folks to merge TA and FB but nice try.

I'm going to wait and see what the new evolution of the Travel Map is like.

Any hints would be appreciated by this forum.

Regards,

David

I hope it is not going to be too much like the Facebook application which provides you with endless lists of restaurants and attractions to rate and compete against your friends to see who has rated the most.

How does TA know where I want to go? This has the hallmarks of using "recently viewed" and interpreting that as though it is a "wish list" . I just

wish TA would finish It's existing "improvements" In particular the Travel Guide before it embarks on any more!!!!

Arandora,

The Want to Go has been able for you to pin places you want to visit for quite a while.

Thanks, TA_Jeanine for letting us know.

Would it be cruel to ask whether the new map feature will have advertising?

This is the first announcement, I think, of a roll out to be.

I think it's great, Mufti. Now, when members write in to the Support Forum, we'll know what to tell them (and we'll know for ourselves).

I welcome this announcement, L4. Makes our job much easier. Would have liked more of them over the past 4 years or so. Hope these announcements are a new policy.
