We need to be convinced that Zetrip offers something original in travel inspiration. Many in the overcrowded field can be uninspiring.
Co-founder and CEO Edouard Tabet said he came up with the idea last year, when he was planning a trip to the Galapagos and wanted to see which of his Facebook friends had been there too.
“This information was really hard to dig from Facebook so I decided to extract it and mine it via their API…To my surprise, I discovered I have a couple friends who went to the Galapagos and posted amazing photos of their trips. I realized there was a gold mine of travel artifacts buried in Facebook and thought it would be super useful and fun to discover new places for my next vacation.”
