GoAbroad.com, provider of the most comprehensive international education and alternative travel directories on the Internet, announced the launch of GoAbroadNetwork, an online travel community where members can share travel journals and photos with families, friends, and a growing network of travelers.
Most of the content in GoAbroad Network is user-generated. It was designed to give users more than the usual fare of blogs, travel tips, and the opportunity to meet travelers. Universities, study abroad offices, travel agents, tour operators or just about any group of travel enthusiasts can become Online Advisors and create special groups where they can post alerts, updates, and photos as well as send email broadcasts to their traveling members. In addition, the group members will be able to access program information and updates, itineraries, application forms and brochures. The idea is to make communication easier and more efficient between an organization and their program participants around the world.
“The GoAbroad Network will allow like-minded travelers to connect and encourage them to share their experiences with more people around the world,” said Troy Peden, one of the founders of GoAbroad.com.
