Our web application is a social network application based on Yelp database it
is a second
home for all Yelp fans! You can easily login with your Facebook account, add other users as
friends, share your experiences in a specific business and also post status updates and photos
with your friends, etc..
Meanwhile, our app creates a public webpage for each business, where you can easily get a
quick overview about the business and others reviews. Whats more? We integrate our app
with Google Map, Google Chart and Wordle, so users can have a real street view around the
business, get route info and get some useful statistics data about the business. We also
recommended some nearby businesses based on user flavor and current location.
We know there are a lot of Yelp fans. Yelp does provide some social networking functionalities, but
it is not its main focus. Often Yelp is regarded as a platform for business reviewing and searching.
We think there is a need for creating a more social networking oriented web application for users to
share their experience, and at the same time, people can see more customized and detailed
information about the businesses they like.
