Craig Ulliott started the Facebook app Where I’ve Been as a side project while he was working as a freelance web developer. In a few days, the app’s use exploded and Craig had a problem. Within a month, Craig had to figure out how support his growing user base of around a million users.
Today, Where I’ve Been is approaching ten million maps created, is one of the most popular travel apps on Facebook, and is partnering with leading companies in the travel industry. I interviewed Craig to learn how he built a wildly successful Facebook app and how starting Where I’ve Been is the “best mistake” Craig ever made.
