Local Businesses: Yelp Can Now Answer Questions

Local business just wouldn't be the same without Yelp. 

The platform allows users to review and rate local businesses and even make reservations, and this week has introduced a feature that will enable users to ask questions directly related to the business. 

The new Yelp Questions and Answers feature are venue specific (as opposed to Yelp's Talk feature which is focused on answering questions of a broader nature), and will provide users an opportunity to up-vote and down-vote answers on the basis of helpfulness. Users can even turn on notifications for a question (and will be notified each time it is answered). 

The feature is being rolled out to all Yelp users for iOS and Android.
