There are plenty of apps and sites that tell you what random people think about stuff. You can find out where some dude thinks you can find the best Indian food in St. Louis. You can find out who some random woman thinks is the best obstetrician in New York City. Best wine, best stroller, best hotel in Maui- if you want random opinions, you’re all set.
The problem is, you don’t care what random people think. You want to know what people who actually know something about that something think about it. Your most knowledgeable wine friends- what do they recommend? Your smartest doctor friends- who would they go to? Your friends who live in New York City- what are their favorite bars?
