Next Stop is/was a new travel recommendation site — people write about places they like near where they live or places they have visited.

It was one of several sites on The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience” list where students could write their own travel guides. In fact, it was the easiest and best of them, by far.

It was just purchased by Facebook and will shut-down by September 1st, according to TechCrunch. And, since Facebook is blocked by just about every School District content filter in existence, even if they continue Next Stop’s features in some form, students won’t be able to use them.
