SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Gogobot, the world's largest social travel site, launched one of the first travel apps for Facebook Timeline.  The new Gogobot app lets friends turn to one another for travel advice and share trip plans, photos, recommendations and personal travel guides straight to their Facebook Timeline.
