TripAdvisor, the Newton travel website, said it has bought Chicago’s Where I’ve Been LLC for an undisclosed amount. Where I’ve Been is a travel website and social platform that lets users share where they’ve been, lived, and want to go. TripAdvisor said the site’s “Facebook application has allowed 10 million people to create color coded travel maps, ‘pinning off’ close to half a billion places.’’ In April, TripAdvisor’s corporate parent, Expedia Inc., said it plans to split into two separate businesses.
