Jeff Esposito

Yelp, like that ex of yours, is a great resource for information on local businesses, showing restaurants’ hours and menu offerings, publishing user reviews of everything from beauty salons to churches, and listing great local events around Boston. While there’s still a place for Yelp in my heart, I’ve found lately that I much prefer using Twitter and Foursquare to find new places and things to do here in Boston.

This is interesting, because isn’t the whole point of Foursquare to only connect with people you actually know? Not sure Foursquare can.
