On Why I Love Yelp – Officially

I’ve been a Y! Answers fan for quite some time now, amazed by their sheer gargantuan scale. When I first started my cushy gig at Kosmix, I wanted to integrate the Answers service into our product and noticed very soon that the service was adding 20000 resolved questions every single week. In the Health category alone!!! That is just unbelievable.

Well, recently I’ve been thinking about moving up to the city and finally checked out a place up here in the glass-and-steel-encrusted SOMA district. I don’t know a hell of a lot about living in SOMA and decided to check out Yelp with a little plea for help using their “Yelp Talk” service.

I posted a question at 6:30pm PST – and the replies started trickling in right away! That is pretty damn cool and not something that’s available on other Q&A services like Yedda or even vertical services like Trulia Voices.

Well done, Yelp! I’m glad to hear you’ve got a bunch of Facebook-style addicts on board.

Here is the full thread (with timestamps, natch) if you’d like to bask in the awesomeness as well:
