I am no fan of Yelp and have been advising the public for years on how to deal with Yelp without having to actually deal with them. The strategy has been working for me and many others businesses that I consult with. This new strategy by Yelp just reinforces the fact that their business model is not working and they have to up their game. I am not sure how this one will work out, only time will tell. I personally think Yelp should be held liable for LIBEL and SLANDER if the information on the Yelp site is not updated timely.

Yelp faces a “dilemma” again with one-star Fake Starbucks reviews.

You don't have to even visit the location of a business to write a review and that's where the Yelp business model fails. Unlike OpenTable, where you can only leave a review on a restaurant AFTER the restaurant checks you in, Yelp has no such functionality.

Adults Need to Engage in Vigorous Debates. Facebook Should Not Be Policing it.

I was able to watch quite a bit of Facebook CEO's Mark Zuckerberg's testimony in front of the Senate this past week. After years of following facebook issues, I learned nothing new. This is a company that is a monopoly and needs to be regulated along with Google, Amazon and may
