Citysearch Launches Another Food Site
West Hollywood-based Citysearch has launched another dedicated vertical web site Thursday, saying it has created a new site, SugarBomber.com, which will provide photos and reviews of local providers of sweets and desserts. The site--similar to its recently launched 3BuckBites food site--features photos and short snippets reviews of local purveyors of desserts and other sweets. Citysearch said the site is the fourth in a series of what it calls "consumer trend lookbooks," including hair salon site MopShots, shoe site LuckyToes, and restaurant site 3BuckBites. All of the sites appear to be an effort by the firm to tap into the rising popularity of user-generated content, and feature commenting on the short reviews, and ability to post pages to site like Facebook and Digg.
