The Social Guide for Backpacking
Existing backpacker resources like Lonely Planet have become out-dated and unsustainable; and they don?t successfully harness the most powerful part of the backpacking community: the advice and suggestions from other backpackers who have recently been to a destination. Travel content on social platforms like TripAdvisor isn?t specific enough to backpackers and there is often minimal to no content for places ?off the beaten track?. Travel bloggers are a much used resource but there are so many that extracting useful information takes hours of surfing the web. BackTracker: A social travel guide that is consistently relevant and up-to-date. BackTracker is a platform for backpackers to record their trip with helpful suggestions on where to go, what to do and where to stay, eat and drink. Friends and family back home can follow their trip, and other backpackers can read and use it for inspiration and advice.
