In a move to make itself the be-all and end-all for all of your social needs, Facebook recently introduced a new and improved version of the Places Directory.

The new directory offers Yelp a run for its money, highlighting the best bars, cafes, attractions, gyms, universities, supermarkets and landmarks locally as well as across the globe. What sets the Places Directory apart from Yelp is that it is powered by information that comes from Facebook Graph Search, showing off places that have the best user rankings, as well as comments that your friends have left in review of specific places. Although there are people who review destinations for a living, what better way to get the scoop on somewhere new than from a friend?
