Halifax’s Facebook Holiday Matchmaker

Posted on July 8th, 2010 in Random Thoughts by Stephanie

Summer has started and although the weather in London so far has been absolutely gorgeous, you’ve probably already booked your getaway or are starting to think about it.  But if you’re finding it hard to decide with so many possible options why not try out Halifax’s Facebook Holiday Matchmaker application. This nifty tool analyses the content in your Facebook profile, your friends, hobbies, interests, the books you’ve read, the town you grew up in and also the places you’ve visited in the past and then recommends your ideal holiday destination. I got a 90% match to New York and strangely enough I have a trip booked there in October! :)

It also saves you holiday planning time by creating a tailor-made travel itinerary of perfectly matched things for you to see and do and suggests where you should stay, what you should do, points you in the direction of their travel money service, tells you what the weather’s like at the moment and it even told me how many Statue Of Liberty visors I could buy for a tenner as souvenirs for my friends!

So if you need help finding your next holiday destination or you just enjoy facebook surfing :), check out the application here.

Hmmm seems interesting but I am on a low budget right now. So hopefully that app will see that and recommend me somewhere cheap and amazing.

Wow! what a nifty little app. It was a fun distraction from my dreary morning. The only thing it is missing is telling me where I get a nanny and some spending money from. Enjoy your NY trip.

I’d be keen to know how this works – does Halifax have to scan your profile, does it save your information and would it then offer hotels, places to eat etc

On the face of it, it seems like a great time saving tool!
