Why Destinations Still Don’t Get Social Media

*As voted upon by me.

As we move into 2012, we are so grateful for our readers, followers and friends of the Travel 2.0 blog.

It never ceases to amaze us how many people take the time to read, comment on and share our work.  It is always greatly appreciated.

Finally, a huge thanks to our guest writers in 2011: Mo, Jules, JimCharyn and Sheila.  Your perspective was a welcome addition, thank you.
