SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Gogobot is tapping APIs from Facebook and Foursquare to use check-in data for users, helping them fill out their travel history and using the information to share with friends and travelers.

The social travel site that connects users with friends via social networks for personalized travel advice, has integrated with Facebook Places and Foursquare, allowing millions of their users to capture and log their check-ins to generate a digital travel scrapbook.

Integrating check-ins from the two largest location based services further enables Gogobot to create one of the most comprehensive travel recommendation engines in world.

With the new integration, anyone planning a trip, whether they are looking for the best boutique hotel in Las Vegas, or a bistro in New York’s West Village, can see which places are most popular among their friends based on their reviews, places they’ve been, as well as their check-ins on Facebook and Foursquare.

In addition, Gogobot now lets users capture their check-ins automatically in their Gogobot Passport, allowing them to effortlessly build and share digital “collections” of their favorite restaurants, hotels and travel spots with their friends. Gogobot allows users to enhance check-ins on the site by adding star-ratings, reviews and personal photos – creating a lasting and highly-visual chronicle of their favorite places.

In just over three months since launching to the public, Gogobot users have shared more than 350,000 places they have been with their connections on Gogobot.

The company is backed by Battery Ventures, Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors, and MySpace founder Chris DeWolfe. Gogobot is based in Menlo Park, Calif.
