I don't use FB I was lumping it in. feel free to remove fb from my comments ~SD

2013-04-10 14:23:51   To my way of thinking, it's not about who is more evil than whom. They are all evil. The point is the intent of the link. Many smaller companies use FB pages as de facto websites, and they communicate with their customers that way. Linking to the FB page is a way of providing Davisites with information that they would otherwise not have easy access to. Linking to Yelp reviews, on the other hand, is just promotional. Prospective customers can get Davisites perspectives from the wiki itself, and there is nothing further added by Yelp. The fact that Yelp is pay-to-play (and businesses have complained about this) just makes it worse. —CovertProfessor

2013-04-10 16:20:22   I have to disagree because usually customers don't write reviews on multiple pages and for a business that is just starting out on the wiki I don't think YELP is a bad thing. I personally don't pay for YELP for my company but I do benefit from it because a lot of internet users go straight to YELP for reviews. Would you all feel the same way about Linked -In? Just putting in my thoughts as i was a new business owner 8 years ago and used most venues to get my name out there. I also have used this company and know how great Ann is. —ElizabethBarthel

2013-04-10 19:26:21   Yelp's advertising policies, once a business has negative reviews, are straight up extortion. Prioritizing (moving to the top) negative reviews for businesses that aren't paying them, while prioritizing positive reviews for businesses that are paying? That's crap.

Despite that, I use Yelp regularly pretty much everywhere except Davis, and it's a great resource from the consumer's perspective. I don't think I'd have a problem with including links to Yelp pages purely for their informational value to readers. But... given how shady Yelp is, I also don't have a problem with excluding links. All in all I'm OK with Yelp links despite their downsides, but I don't feel strongly enough about it to push for a change in the status quo. —TomGarberson
