Yelp.com, a directory service with social networking
features and a place for users to post reviews, has expanded into Turkey,
launching services for Istanbul, the company announced on its website
“Our initial community-building efforts in Turkey will
concentrate on Istanbul, the only city in the world to span two continents, but
Yelpers can rate and review the great and the not-so-great businesses from
across the country and share what their neighborhoods have to offer both locals
and tourists,” the company’s statement said.
People in Turkey – Yelp.com’s 20th country – can now
create profiles and access mobile maps or create a page for their business by
visiting the firm’s website.
