I was recently reading this article, http://mashable.com/2012/09/03/10-yelp-facts/, to get a sense of how prevalent Yelp is among social media communities. I was first shocked to notice that restaurants are actually not the most commonly reviewed entity, and that actually shopping is! Furthermore, a poll showed that customer service went the furthest in satisfying customers and generating the best reviews. Finally, Yelp does not advice for businesses to encourage its customers to write reviews. Yelp simply wants to promote website awareness, but by not forcing any customers to relay their opinions, the site can ensure “quality over quantity.” How often do you guys write reviews? And what types of places do you commonly write them for? Are your reviews prompted by an internal desire to share your thoughts, or were you encouraged externally? And when you write the reviews, are they only bad?
