The travel industry website TravelMole posits that people are planning vacations based on the trips their friends post about on Facebook and other social media sites.
My friends aren’t that impressionable, but they’re plenty mean.
My friend Elissa takes vacation taunting to new lows by posting photos of beautiful beaches on Facebook and tagging an empty spot with my name. My other Facebook friends like to post resentful remarks under my vacation snapshots, often threatening bodily harm. Hawaii seems to really set them off.
