With hotel listings in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and more cities on the way, Hotelied is perhaps the most ambitious addition to the growing number of opportunities targeting travelers with social network followings. In 2011 the Radisson Blu Edwardian brand gave guests of its Manchester and London hotels late checkouts if they checked in on Facebook or Foursquare. Last year American Airlines offered one-day lounge passes to travelers with a score of 55 or higher on Klout.com, which measures people’s digital influence (the average score is around 40). This summer, InterContinental Hotels Group asked travelers to use Instagram and hashtags to try to win a trip to New York City. And the perks continue to proliferate. With social media now as much a part of the vacation experience as sunscreen, freebies and discounts are also being offered through networks such as Instagram and Pinterest. The more followers you have, the more robust your social media presence, the more alluring you are to hospitality brands. Get the full story at The New York Times
