'Where Bot' Offers Restaurant Options Through Facebook Messenger

Like a city-savvy foodie friend, 'Where Bot' is a chat bot that works in Facebook Messenger to give users recommendations on restaurant options.

While more restaurant-specific platforms like Yelp also sort out the proliferation of food choices around town, Where Bot centralizes all that data within the chat app that so many smartphone users already frequent. And since Where Bot works through Facebook Messenger, its recommendations come immediately (as opposed to the user having to sort through the top options on other platforms.)

Where Bot does not operate in a vacuum, however. Its recommendations come with links to a restaurant's website, its Google Map point, and even its profiles other sources such as Yelp. Where Bot doesn't try to supersede established restaurant-rating services, it simply tries to make the selection process quicker for today's on-the-go diners who refuse to compromise when it comes to their repast.
