Bizzy Launches Local Recommendations Site

Bizzy, a new personalized location recommendation engine, said today that it has launched a new service to help users find local businesses. The site--which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Woodland Hills-based ReachLocal--said it is launching into beta, and will help match people with similar preferences, based on the answers they give to a series of questions about a users' favorite places. The new site is a revamp of what previously had been a local business site, which had allowed business owners to share special offers and events to customers. ReachLocal had originally launched Bizzy in June.
