Many people these days are going on business travel alone or with just a select few members of their company, which can lead to boring nights in hotel rooms. Creators of social media applications want to make business trips more exciting and enriching than they have been in the past. 

Before a person even gets on a plane, they can choose from several apps to put in a request of the type of person they'd like to sit next to or get to know their fellow passengers better. These apps include Planely and Meet and Seat. This helps guide business travel away from boring, and instead makes it worthwhile. You never know who and what opportunities you could find! Once travelers get their airport car rental, they can look for fun things to do in the city and learn their way around with apps such as Goby or 3D Cities.

Travelers can also stay social by connecting with their family and friends at home. Frequent travelers might want to invest in iPhones for their spouses and children, as these phones offer Facetime, which can help families stay in touch on-the-go - the real-time chat screen will make you feel like you're right at home with your loved ones! To connect with friends, make sure to create a Skype account. This popular social video site will allow you to chat with your friends whenever you have a free minute.
