Don’t get me wrong, Yelp is great in that it obviously helps users search and find service-based businesses that meet their standard of quality. I check it all the time. So, what seems to be the problem?
I have interacted with so many interesting and engaging people since opening my Twitter account.
I typically don’t follow everyone who follows me. If you take a look at my “Following” list, you’ll notice that it’s inundated with social media people, Boulder people, and Boulder/Denver restaurants. A girl’s gotta eat!
