Yelp is all about sharing your experiences at local businesses, and we’re excited to announce yet another way to do just that. When checking into a business, you now have the opportunity to take a check-in photo to capture your surroundings. The camera will then flip, allowing you to take a selfie (or, a “Yelfie”), add the business name and star rating, and share your creation with friends and family. Yelfies are a fun way to capture your experiences with local businesses in-the-moment. Want to see it in action? Check out this video below:
Yelfies started out as a Hackathon project developed by a group of Yelp engineers. We’re excited to see the feature coming to life and Yelpers sharing these moments with the rest of the community. Check out #Yelfie on social media to get some inspiration for your next check-in, and some highlights below:
This feature is currently rolling out on iPhone and Android devices. SYOY!
