The Great Debate UK
from Business Traveller:
That’s when the fun starts, says the boss of a new social network for business travellers. But how is Whenthemeetingsover.com carving a niche among the Goliaths of social networking?
Socially you’re likely long-entrenched in Facebook; reserving LinkedIn to connect with a larger professional network. You probably also dip into user-generated TripAdvisor for opinion overload on restaurants and hotels; the well-organised among you might use the travel-planning and itinerary sharing networks Dopplr or Tripit, and be eyeing up the just-launched Gtrot.
What’s missing? Stuart Dawson, CEO of Whenthemeetingsover.com (WTMO) has bundled what he would argue are the best and most relevant attributes of the above into a one-stop, go-to portal for business-travelling social animals.

If anyone had any doubts about the growing importance of social networks they surely passed in 2009 when Twitter burst into the mass consciousness.
