Discover new experiences. Whether you're taking a trip or exploring your home city, we make it easy to find awesome things to do based on recommendations from Facebook, Foursquare, and Twitter friends.

This morning we emailed our users a monthly newsletter to let them know that big changes are coming to gtrot. Tnooz shared our news with their community to let them know that we’re shifting from travel planning to city discovery. 

When we launched the current in November, we thought we built a travel planning product. Turns out we were wrong. Personalized recommendations for restaurants, nightlife, deals, events, and more are great for travel. But nearly half of you started exploring your home city, using this advice to plan your weekend or night out. So this month, we’re relaunching gtrot to give users what you want: a platform for discovering your city, sharing your favorite things, and making plans with friends. Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on the relaunch!

I recently asked a friend who was just back from a PhoCosWright conference if there was any buzz around the topic of Social Travel. From his response, I gathered that the buzz was that nobody has yet nailed it. At this point, it seems as though Gtrot is closer than anyone else to presenting travel content using a person’s social graph. With travel being inherently social, something big is bound to develop very soon.
