    If you click on the link "Learn About SPG Social" and use the tabs provided, a lot of the mystery may be resolved. ;)

    If after reading these, you still have questions, fire away.

    Hahah =) I did actually look @ that after i posted.

    From what i can gather ... it learns your past stays and from your wishlist to suggest new properties to stay at.
    Also if your friends stay at a W (Why only a W) you can send them a gift.
    It tells your friends (on SPG Social or FB) when you book a stay or wishlist a property.

    Am I missing anything else?

    During your stay, you can create an itinerary of things to do and share it with your Facebook friends.

    You can also post a review of your stay which can also be shared with other members.

    LOL. Well, only if they want to get caught. ;)

    There is nothing inadvertent about what SPG Social posts to Facebook. You have control over what to share and not to share as far as stay and attached itinerary information is concerned.
