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.

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!

presented with the option of whether or not you want to share your

reviews for that business via Facebook Connect.

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!
