Local businesses on Google+

Where do we go tonight?

Nothing new here: it’s a little like Tripadvisor, or the Italian 2spaghi, but integrated in Google. Here we have Google+ Local, a way to “discover new businesses, rediscover places we love, and share them with their friends across the web“.

The original post is here.

So we have another way to find the finest and closest places. The businesses in G+Local can now be found across Google search, Maps, mobile and GooglePlus. Google also integrated this service with Zagat reviews, which are pretty much about the US.

Basic information about these businesses can still be managed in Google Places for Business. Moreover, reviews by friends will be available.

This market looks a bit crowded, why is G+ Local expected to be a success? Maybe GooglePlus will make it sink into oblivion as well.
