The history of TripAdvisor
TripAdvisor was initiated by Nick Shanny, Langley Steinert and Stephen Kaufer back in the year 2000. It was the idea of Stephen Kaufer to come up with a user generated social media network, which can exchange reviews. At the beginning, the team focused more on the usage of official words, such as magazines, newspapers and guidebooks. It encouraged visitors to go ahead and add their own reviews. On the other hand, visitors were also provided with the chance to go through the existing reviews and get meaningful information at the end of the day.
In the year 2009, TripAdvisor went ahead and launched the official website in China. The company has been growing since then and it has added more than 20,000 restaurants and hotels from all over China. As of now, TripAdvisor is one of the biggest travel websites based in the country. Year 2018 was one of the most prominent milestones in the history of TripAdvisor. That’s where TripAdvisor incorporated with Door Dash in order to take restaurant listings to a whole new level.
