How powerful is the influence of peer review travel sites?

How powerful is the influence of peer review travel sites? 01.2014

‘How powerful is the influence of peer review travel sites?’ is the question for this week’s online hangout hosted on Google+ and livestreamed via YouTube. As a traveler, are you influenced by your friends’ comments, likes and shares? Do you pay attention to reviews and ratings? Do the restaurants and hotels you frequent show off their ‘Certifications of Excellence’ or ask you to follow them on the social web?

Invited to the discussion are good friends and colleagues around the world:

@ThisTourismWeek

@Ruukel

@localtravels

@TransAbroad

@alastairmck

Everyone is welcome to provide specific examples via the individual event pages on Google+ or via Twitter by including @RonMader in your tweet.
