    The travel industry will never be the same again, what with the advent of mobile technology making the choosing and booking of flights and hotels as easy and tapping a button. A new infographic packed with information provides an overview of the marriage of travel and mobile technology, and where it's taking off to next.

    The infographic published by My Destination on Visual.ly looks at several categories: mobile technology has changed forever, who has embraced mobile technology within the travel industry, travellers and mobile technology, who is leading the way with mobile and social technology, interesting and innovative sites for travellers, and the future.

    Among interesting facts and figures on the infographic are the top 5 couchsurfing cities. In first place is New York, followed by Paris, London, Berlin and Istanbul. The US is No 1 out of the top 5 couchsurfing countries, followed by Germany, France, Canada and the UK.

    The statistics are skewed, however. A spambot produced 50,000+ fake profiles in New York a few months ago. Paris is the real #1.

    with spambot and other forms of manipulation, crowdsourcing has some serious downsides
