The recent acquistion of "Where I've Been" provides more evidence that social networking applications and mapping applications will continue to merge. "Where I've Been" is a mapping / Facebook Platform API created by Craig Ulliott.
TripAdvisor has reportedly paid $3 million for the application which at the time of sale was being used by over 2.3 million Facebook account holders. The "Where I've Been" map interface allows users to display a color-coded map of states and countries which they have visited, lived in, or possibly want to travel to.
