In the world of social travel, Gogobot is flying high.  The company has grown 800% in the past 10 months to exceed 2 million users and has eclipsed its “social travel” competitors including Trippy, CouchSurfing, Wanderfly (acquired by TripAdvisor) and Tripbirds (according to AppData, Nov. 13, 2012).  Other competitors including gtrot, have taken a one way ticket to the dead pool, so while the market consolidates, Gogobot remains strong and is putting on the turbo chargers.

Speaking of which, this week Gogobot announced the integration of a suite of tools that give users the ability to reserve a table at a restaurant, get a street view of a location, and tap one of the most innovative hotel deal engines – all of which enhances what was already the most robust bundle of features in social travel.
