Fellow Foodies – Yelp and Zagat are both social media outlets but neither are considered for social media influence tracking by klout, Empire Avenue, PeerNet, etc. Is this because we Yelpers are fine within our special community and don’t need to be bothered with those other tools? Or are outlets such as Twitter, FaceBook, and Google+ reducing the value and prominence of Yelp and Zagat.
As an example, I posted a negative review of a restaurant on Yelp and got a response about a week later from the restaurant. I tweeted a negative comment about a bar this weekend and got a response within 24 hours.
What say ye? Would love to hear your thoughts here or follow me on twitter and post your response there.
