HotelLounger.com launches the first ever Social Network
 for the Hotel and Travel Industry

.


Los Angeles (June 11, 2009) Lately there has been a lot of talk about social media in the hospitality and travel industry and most of the focus has been on Facebook and Myspace which are a few of the leaders in the social media arena, hotels today are looking for new ways to market and promote their product to consumers and increase their revenue through online bookings.
 
In response to this growing need, HotelLounger.com has launched a new Social Network for hoteliers and travelers.  You can create a group on Hotel Lounger to share photos, journals, blogs with your growing network of mutual friends!
  • Hoteliers will be able to profile their hotel or hotels and share photos, videos and virtual tours.
  • Travelers will be able to share their travel experiences, photos, favorite places and more.
  • Single people will be able to meet other singles while traveling
  • Business travelers and co-workers will be able to meet others who are interested in a travel network.
Giving hotels and travelers an interactive networking platform, gives hoteliers a greater presence over the internet and makes traveling for their guest, not so lonely. Hotel Lounger, gives a piece of home “away from home”.

“The value of a social network is defined not only by who's on it, but by who's excluded,” says Paul Saffo, a Silicon Valley forecaster. “According to a Google statesperson, “social networking is going to be the second-most popular online activity by 2012, overtaking shopping and surpassing both communication—such as email—and entertainment,”  Derrick Hines of Hotel Lounger adds, “Hoteliers who explore social networking early on in its development will have a clear competitive advantage as it matures.”
