    Here is another interesting way to put social networking to use for travel.

    KLM has started a new program called Meet & Seat.
    It allows you to see who's on board your flight and get in touch with other passengers by connecting your Facebook and/ or LinkedIn account to your KLM booking profile.

    KLM says you can meet other interesting travelers and increase networking opportunities- "Choose for yourself whether you want to meet for a coffee before the flight, select adjoining seats or share a cab to the conference you are both attending". It sounds to me like it could become another form of internet dating or hook-up opportunities!

    To read more about Meet & Seat and watch the demo video, check out my full post at:

    Yeah, this was all over the news back in December and quite a few people thought that it was a joke.

    Interesting.... I just received an e-mail from KLM and the video was posted today. I think it is a bit ridiculous but I am sure that many will give it a try!
