CitySearch Takes off The Gloves

After almost a solid year of heavy competition from Yelp, CitySearch is unveiling a test version of its new site today, the most exciting new feature involves integrating your Facebook account into Citysearch. When you browse the site, Citysearch can prioritize content written by your Facebook friends; you can import your Facebook profile into Citysearch; and you can also share your Citysearch reviews on Facebook and have them show up in your news feed. Citysearch will also try to provide more relevant information by focusing on individual neighborhoods, rather than entire cities. This leads to a huge increase in Citysearch pages, from 140 city guides to a combined 70,000 city and neighborhood guides. Pretty cool...
