Bragging On Social Media A Big Part Of Travel For Millennials

For some travelers, the small screen can be more alluring than the beach scene.

A survey out this month claims to have discovered a new millennial trend: Travel bragging.

According to the research commissioned by Expedia brand Hotels.com, 30 percent of the millennials surveyed acknowledged spending more than four hours a day on their mobiles while traveling.

Forty-four percent of the 18-to-29-year-olds posted shots of food to brag about their trips, and two out of three said they’d rather upload a selfie than a picture with their significant other. A majority, or 60 percent, of youthful travelers acknowledged uploading photos while on the road. Another 39 percent said they’d check in at cool places while on vacation and 32 percent tracked the interaction of their posts.    MORE
