Adventurers ‘check into’ the wild with social networking

These days adventure travelers rely on apps and social networking to track their progress and share experiences with friends and the online community.


Parker Liautaud, now 17, became the first person to “check into” the North Pole via the location-based social networking site Foursquare in 2010. Since then he’s been tweeting and posting on Facebook about his travels. In April he will be broadcasting his next adventure to the North Pole using Ustream to beam his trip worldwide live on the web.

    vary mature for a 16 year old. He failed on the first attempt last year I guess. Very dangerous. I would not do!
