Facebook Launches Competitor To Yelp

Facebook has introduced a feature that brings some of Yelp's top features to the social network. The feature lets people find local businesses and view their reviews and ratings, just like Yelp does. You can reach the "services" part of Facebook with this URL.

Once you head to that site, you can search for different types of businesses and workers in a given area. Facebook highlights categories like "plumbers," "event planning," "spas," "medical & health," and "automotive."

Yelp still has more features and likely more reviews for many businesses, but this offer from Facebook may pull some users away from Yelp.
