I'm trying out a new service provided by Yelp. The Time web site has written about 10 essential web sites and says this of Yelp:
If it's a restaurant, shop or business, it's probably been reviewed on Yelp — an independent site with millions of user-submitted evaluations. Yelp's got a gaggle of rivals — most notably Yahoo! Local — but it's the only one that lets reviewees talk back.
I recently wrote to them pointing out that Formby is not in or part of Southport and they have responded by setting up a section specifically for Formby. My first review has just been added to the Yelp pages.
I hope that local residents and businesses find this a useful source of information including publicity and reviews.
