Life at WAYN (Where Are You Now?)
With over 22million members worldwide, WAYN is the world’s largest travel focused social network. WAYN helps people discover where to go and what to do by connecting users with locals and like-minded travelers. WAYN has been named “world’s leading travel social network” for two straight years at the 2012 and 2013 World Travel Awards. A focus on social and engagement KPIs provides a unique and compelling channel for commercial partners to inspire and connect with our community.
WAYN is a fast growing business, still led by founder entrepreneurs who are passionate about the business and its people. WAYN can offer advertisers rich targeting not just in user demographics, but also their aspirations and dreams: where they want to travel, what they want to do, what they enjoy, and more with over 100,000 interest data points collected each day. This is data that many other publishers can only dream of. And we’re always finding new ways to commercialise it.
