Travel brands, a social media journey


Media Mosaic, a travel-focused digital marketing agency, assembled an infographic to provide a bird’s eye view of the largest travel brands’ presence on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn along with, where available, their TripAdvisor ratings.

The social travel revolution is a well-documented one, as airlines, cruises, and hotels are using social media more than ever before, and receptive travelers are right there alongside them.

Social travel revenue has grown 103% – (compared to regular travel’s 4.03%) – and 40% of travel companies now rate social media as increasingly important in connecting tourists with their business.
