It would be interesting to see how travel.se, its questions and its answers are discussed on twitter. Is there a hashtag we could use to tweet and monitor?

The official Twitter handle for Travel.SE is @StackTravel, which is a firehose of automatically tweeted links to new questions. It tags questions with 'leading' tag, which sounds like a useful standard for tagging.

We could use #TravelSE for now? It's short, and identifies that it's an abbreviation if we case it correctly. Only possible conflict is that there's an actual website out there called http://travel.se! ;) Haven't seen them tweeting though.

Does anybody know how to set up something on Twitter's competitors?

Google Plus has tweet-like things you can "follow".

I have some geek friends who are active on g+ and like to travel.

Facebook, trying to head Google off at the pass also added support for "following" things.

Most of us have a boatload of non geek friends here and I bet it's easier to get them to "follow" us than to sign up. After following us for a while I'm sure they are more likely to sign up.

Also Diaspora has now started up!

Anybody already know how these things work? Could you give the rest of us a bit of explanation?

Anybody interested enough to investigate how they work then give us the run down?

I know a high percentage of us are programmers as well as travellers and I for one should have plenty of hacking time over the next few months.

    Do we need approval from our Stack Exchange overlords to start a Facebook page? – Ankur Banerjee Nov 9 '11 at 10:18
  • Very good question @AnkurBanerjee! Would adding the support or feature request tag to this question get an overlord to see it? – hippietrail Nov 9 '11 at 10:20
