Many people like travel and take photos or videos for memory. But few of them make travel record completely and continuously. One possible reason is that it is difficult to record meticulous detail of travelling; another one is that it lacks proper platform to facilitate organizing travelling records. The fast development of information and communication technology with popularity of smart phone provides a convenient approach for organizing travel record. In this paper a Travelling memory based upon location based service and social network is introduced. It adopts Checkin service in Facebook to let travelers easily collect travel information, and then upload to Travelling memory (TM) service. With this service, travelers can select, organize, and share their travelling information. Upon completion of system development, the SUS (System Usability Scale) approach was adopted to evaluate system usability. The result shows that travelers give very good response.
