In Brief

A new social media tool for travelers launched in public beta last week.

With the combined powers of Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare and the tools to create an interactive itinerary, travelers may have just got their new favorite form of social media called Tripline. Tripline allows users to create an interactive and embeddable map that appears like a timeline of stops within a country or city. Photos, videos, check-ins and geo-enabled Tweets can be added to each point as well as descriptions of activities and tips for travelers.

According to TechCrunch, Tripline was founded by ex-Yahoo employee Byron Dumbrill, and was created when Dumbrill and his fiancee were planning a lengthy trip to Costa Rica.
