Our own April Mayrath has been busy racking up frequent flier miles as she flies to local TV stations to provide advice on the best tech gadgets and apps for the holidays. We are proud to give some broadcast love to the companies we love, including FreedomPop, Gogobot, Azumio, LifeTrak, and Sleep Genius.
So far April has appeared on KUTV-CBS in Salt Lake City (you can watch by clicking below), and on KVVU-FOX in Las Vegas. That’s just the start – more to come!
More than most entrepreneurs chasing the Facebook dream, Travis Katz knew what it would take to build a business on Facebook, and the implications of social networking as a whole on a business, as he headed international operations at MySpace and helped to grow the platform from a user base of 10 million to 66 million. Travis went on to create Gogobot, the largest social travel site built on Facebook, which surpassed the 1 million registered user mark in May, with a new member joining every 15 seconds and more than 60 percent growth since January 2012.
“Gogobot has become a go-to, reliable source of travel information for a community of more than 1 million in-the-know travelers because it automatically sorts reviews and photos of hotels, restaurants, and attractions based on their popularity in your personal network — so every user has a unique, personalized experience. By far the largest and fastest growing in the increasingly hot social travel space, so many people have adopted Gogobot because the advice comes from friends and like-minded users in your network, rather than anonymous strangers.” — Travis Katz, CEO and co-founder, Gogobot.
Congratulations to the Gogobot team in Menlo Park and London for reaching this major milestone! Here’s a snapshot of some of their coverage, including a great 5 minute broadcast segment featuring Travis on FOX Business, where Gogobot was described as the “Facebook of Travel.”
