Abstract:

Google has created an app, Field Trip, that gives people facts about the places around them, without the need to even ask for the information. Google says it’s like having a local friend with you as you make your way through a city. This is weird to me…What happened to asking our REAL friends who’ve actually been to those places where the best place to eat is, or where to stay, or personal stories of their experiences around the city. I mean that’s what makes a certain city special right? Is technology becoming our new best friend? But I guess who needs to have connections and even friends to show us around and give us trivial information, when we have the Field Trip app to be our everything.
