What's the Future Value of Yelp?
Remember the days when Yelp was just about restaurants?

The platform has expanded beyond that and it has included a variety of businesses on which you can find useful and sometimes funny reviews.

The latest helpful information, though, has nothing to do with restaurants and stores, but with the hospital's emergency room.

The feature, at first available only on desktop, will tell you the ER waiting times, the noise level of the hospital rooms, the number of beds and other information such as whether or not the government has ever fined the facility for not meeting some criteria.
