Social networking 'makes people more adventurous'

Social networking is now easily accessible on a range of handsets

Technology linked with the latest mobile phones has been cited as one of the reasons the world is becoming a smaller place.

As more people use their handsets to access sites like Facebook and Twitter, one expert has suggested the social networking phenomenon is also changing the way people travel.

Jonathan Cudworth, head of product marketing at Expedia.co.uk, said consumers are becoming more adventurous about their holiday choices as it is now natural to log on and see what experiences others have had.

"What social networking does is make the world smaller so people are more likely to venture out of their comfort zone knowing people they know or people similar to them have been to these amazing places," he explained.

According to a recent study by lastminute.com, 42 per cent of young people are likely to be updating their Facebook account or micro blogging on Twitter when they should really be relaxing.
