  • The FTC is questioning TripAdvisor after a website
    reportedly removed
    user accounts of rape and assault.
  • TripAdvisor has since
    introduced a magnitude that allows a cabinet of employees
    to dwindle resorts that are deemed unsafe.


Travel recommendation website TripAdvisor drew a madness of users
and observers after it was indicted of stealing claims of assault
and rape users done in reviews of resorts listed on a site.

TripAdvisor has attempted to forestall serve debate by
introducing measures to dwindle resorts that are deemed unsafe, but
it wasn’t adequate to equivocate courtesy from a Federal Trade
Commission, that is reportedly questioning a company, the

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

The review was suggested in a minute from a FTC to
Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin. 

“The Commission has a clever seductiveness in protecting
consumer certainty in a online marketplace, including the
strong online marketplace for hotel and travel,” FTC
Chairwoman Maureen Ohlhausen wrote, according to the

“When consumers are incompetent to post honest reviews about a
business, it can mistreat other consumers whose abilities to make
well-informed squeeze decisions are hindered and mistreat businesses
that work tough to acquire certain reviews.”

Published in November, a Journal-Sentinel’s
inquisitive news suggested a trend of users reporting
being raped and assaulted during resorts around a world, usually for
TripAdvisor to symbol their reviews as scuttle-butt or unsuited for
a site and mislay them. Since then, a site has shaped a
cabinet of employees who will have a ability to dwindle resorts
where users news reserve concerns. 

TripAdvisor did not immediately respond to Business
Insider’s ask for comment.
