Users bottom of the inning give a LIKE too. mixer media also locoweed give discipline to the journeyer and also to those who are doing business too. with social media it has changed the world in various ways.Method of belles-lettres selection.I have conducted an electronic d atabase search by dint of Tunku Abdul Rahman University Colleges digital depository library and I have utilize the ACM Digital Library . The keyword that I used in the online database include social media, travels and phaeton. I have also conducted searches on the How Big is the agitate? pillow slip and Location Based race poser in complaisant Media catalogue, SocRoutes Safe Routes Based on Tweet Sentiments archive, Event detection over twitter social media streams archive, use loving Media to fuck off Places of Interest A Case Study archive, GoThere Travel Suggestions victimization Geotagged Photos archive and Near2me An sure and Personalized mixerMedia-based Recommender for Travel Destinations. I have chosen only the articles that were published within 5 years ago. The three articles which I have chosen to reference on were selected based on the relevancy to the topic of the essay. companionable media for travellingSocial media is so popular these geezerhood and it is frequently used by the young and the old. Some of the purposes of the usage for social media is to get information nearly traveling, places that are popular and famous, places that usually draw in tourists which in opposite term, it is also called the tourist attraction. One of the function that social media has is called GeoTag. Geotagging lavatory help users search and plant out all kinds of location-specific information. Social media can also let users check into all the places that they have been to and leave a trace to show and prove that the point user has been there before. Users can also leave some comments or critiques about the visited places so that the early(a)wise users can get feedbacks, information and be intimate better about that fact place and maybe too can puzzle out about the services or products provided there, whether or non it is good or bad. Social media is not only for lifestyle, it is also for tourist guidance and to let them recognize more a bout the history of the place. As an example, one application that has these functions is called forthrightly. Social media can also let users share information via twitter to other users so that they can know whether if the route they are taking is experiencing a traffic jam or not so that other users can choose either to go the usual route or go for an alternative way to reach their destination. Social media can too let users share information about the weather condition to others so that other users are able to know whether a particular place is drizzling, precipitate heavily, sunny, windy, snowing or honourable nice. Of course in Malaysia, there will not be any snowing going on. Anyway, in short social media can let users come to to each other. The other example of what social media can do is that social media can let users know whether if their friends are near them via Foursquare check in. Since they are able to know where their friends are and if they found out that thei r friends are nearby, they could simply just go to where their friends are just to greet and chit chat a little while. The other function of social media is that one can share information worldwide through the internet. In my opinion social media has turned travelling easier and more agreeable for travelers around the world. First and foremost, I think that social media can connect people around the world. This is based on the article How Big is the Crowd? Event and Location Based Population Modeling in Social Media. It is stated that recently the emerged social network services like Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare are some of the largest and fastest growing web communities, offering an massive platform for connecting people (Yuan Liang, James Caverlee, Zhiyuan Cheng, Krishna Y. Kamath 2013). I also think that social media can let travelers and tourist find popular places and events. Based on the writer of Event detection over twitter social media streams and Using Social Media to Find Places of InterestA Case Study, they claimed that there are 190 million geotagged Flickr photos and this kind of data is used to detect events, find popular places and tourist routes automatically(Steven Van Canneyt, Steven Schockaert, Olivier Van Laere, Bart Dhoedt 2012) and also in some cases, for example, for crisis management and decision making, monitoring some of the critical events over social streams can let the watch officers to analyze the whole posture carefully and accurately. This enables them to make the right decision based on the lucubrate shown over the social streams. They can easily identify what is exactly happening, where that particular event is taking place at and of course, who are those involved in it. (Xiangmin Zhou, Lei Chen 2013). Social media also helps travelers to find out and know more about a particular place based on the writer that writes the article GoThere Travel Suggestions using Geotagged Photo. Assumptions made about tourist attracti ons is that those are the places that are often photographed and geotagged. Geotags annotated to photos have been exploited and used for many a(prenominal) different things. For example, geotags annotated to photos are used for mapping geotags to places and also for suggesting recommendation of travel itineraries (Abdul Majid, Ling Chen, Gencai Chen, Hamid Turab Mirza, Ibrar Hussain 2012). Last but not least, the social media world is so advanced that someone actually created a prototype using social media for recommending places for tourist personal interest. Based on the writers of this article, they claimed that this prototype can accept users to explore, evaluate, and make recommendations, control recommendation direction and discover informative backing material (Christoph Kofler, Luz Caballero, Maria Menendez_, Valentina Occhialini, Martha Larson 2011). In my opinion, I think social media is actually useful for travelers as it helps a lot in providing useful information, tips and feedbacks one needs for traveling.ConclusionIn conclusion, social media can do a lot stuffs. It not only can be an immense platform that can help people connect to each other, it can also be an informative space for travelers and tourists to help them find useful information and tips about popular places and events. It really is a great help for the travelers to understand what they should be expecting before they go for a vacation at a particular place. This is how social media changed the world.ReferenceAbdul, M, Ling, C, Gencai, C, Hamid, M Ibrar, H 2012, GoThere Travel Suggestions using Geotagged Photos, WWW 12 Companion minutes of the 21st world-wide meeting companion on World Wide Web, pp.577-578.Christoph, K, Luz, C, Maria, M, Valentina, O Martha, L 2011, Near2me An Authentic and Personalized Social Media-based Recommender for Travel Destinations, WSM 11Proceedings of the 3rd ACM SIGMM international workshop on Social media, pp. 47-52.Steven, C, Steven, S, Olivi er, L Bart, D 2012, Using Social Media to Find Places of Interest A Case Study , GEOCROWD 12Proceedings of the 1st ACM SIGSPATIAL worldwide Workshop on Crowdsourced and Volunteered Geographic Information, pp. 2-8.Xiangmin, Z Lei, C 2014, Event detection over twitter social media streams,The VLDB Journal The International Journal on Very Large Data Bases,Vol.23, pp. 381-400.Yuan L, James, C, Zhiyuan, C Krishna, K 2013, How Big is the Crowd?
