TripAdvisor, the popular social reviews site for travelers, has purchased the photo app sharing company Tiny Post, in a deal whose terms were not disclosed. The Tiny Post team will move into TripAdvisor’s Palo Alto offices.
The Tiny Post app lets users write captions over their photos, bringing together images and stories. This could prove to be a useful tool for TripAdvisor, which lets users share reviews and photos of hotels, restaurants and tourist sites.
“The Tiny Post team have created a wonderful app that shows the possibilities of combining travel photos with social and mobile,” stated Steve Kaufer, co-founder/CEO of TripAdvisor. “We think Tiny Post is a great fit with our continued drive to provide engaging and sharable content and I am happy to welcome this strong team to TripAdvisor.”
