It’s become a fact of life that our Facebook profiles have a lot of information about who we are and what we like. Halifax Travel Money have created a great Facebook App which harnesses this and matches you to your ideal holiday based on the information in your Facebook profile, it also suggests what you might like to eat, drink and do while on your ideal holiday. Apparently Westfield & Union Sq. is the place to shop in San Francisco!
Halifax Travel Money decided that I was a 92% match to San Francisco, and helpfully also shows how much typical items are, such as how much a nice burger might set you back (£1.32) or how much a Napa Valley Win Tour will take (£23.68).
From a geeky point of view, this app is a great example of how to harness what must be an extensive database of information and then matching that to the wealth of social information from my profile, and it does it pretty damn well!
This isn’t the first time that the Halifax Travel Money app has made an appearance, it was first launched in June 2010 and made a great impression then too, and now it’s back new and improved and is just a fun app to checkout and see what your holiday scrap book might look like!
There are over 17,000 people using the app, and it’s well worth a checkout, even if you’re just curious as to what a tenner will get you – I can get 2.32 loaves of San Francisco Sourdough bread in case you wondered – or just to checkout what the weathers like!
