Social Media can play an exciting role in your vacation before, during, and after your trip. I use hashtags for research before I leave for my trip, gaining ideas and knowledge for what to do, see, eat, etc. I love to post my own photos while on vacation to connect with my followers, friends, and clients. Then months down the road when I need a little inspiration I will go back and search hashtags like #fourseasonsborabora to live vicariously through people that are experiencing the resort at that exact moment!
