CityWaboo Launches Local Search Site

Burbank-based CityWaboo has launched yet another online local search site, focused on ratings, reviews, and recommendations of local businesses. The company--which had rolled out the site in beta form last May--is focused on letting friends and others share ratings and reviews of local restaurants and other businesses. The service, which also has launched a Facebook application tied to its reviews, sells advertising to local businesses. The site follows CitySearch,, Angie's List, Yahoo Local, Yelp, and ill fated Judy's Book into the local business reviews and guide market.
