Because @Aplusk Wants to Know Where to Get the Best Darn Pizza, Too

We all know that Yelp is the place to get the 411 on local businesses whether it’s a dog groomer, mechanic or even a creme brulee cart. But, it’s time we let everyone else in on the secret. Including Ashton. And your Mom.

As the bonafide social media addict here at Yelp, it's with great pleasure that I get to announce - you guessed it - a new feature that lets you share your Yelp reviews with Facebook Connect and Twitter. Many of you have been using a variety of social media platforms to further share your Yelp reviews of local businesses. Today we’re making that process much easier by presenting Yelpers with the option to seamlessly broadcast their Yelp reviews.

It’s a one-time sign-up process. Upon completing a review you will be presented with the option to choose whether you would also like to distribute it via Facebook Connect, Twitter or both. Simply fill in your log-in details and you’re done!

While the log-in process only occurs once, moving forward, you will always be presented with the option of whether or not you want to share your review to your Facebook or Twitter feeds, respectively. Additionally, any photos you upload to Yelp.com will also be included when sharing reviews for that business via Facebook Connect.

You always have full control of what reviews you do or do not want to share via these other platforms. So don't worry, we totally understand why you may choose to share your review on the great, new speakeasy down the street but not the one about the strip tease work out class you're partaking in with your girlfriends (ahem). So what are you waiting for? Start sharing and get connected to more Yelpers around the web - including me @cckarl!
