Fun With Big Data: Playing with Yelp Trends


Yelp has released a new way to play with the online review giant’s data. Yelp Trends allows you to see how popular certain terms have been over Yelp’s ten years in business. It’s interesting to see just how Starr focused Philadelphia was back in 2006-08.
