We’ve all been there. You’re looking for a restaurant or a bar nearby, so you hop on your pocket internet machine. You’re led to Yelp or TripAdvisor or another one of the gazillion social networks and after searching around for a bit, you think, goddammit, everyone on here is kinda a dick. I mean really, it’s true, the internet is full of assholes and often it’s the social networking sites that enable this assholatry.
Luckily I’ve just come across HeyLets. HeyLets is a network built around positive experiences. It shows you recommendations that are popular with people similar to you, making the process of discovery more social, and the results more relevant. Unlike other companies there are no 3 star reviews from people with nothing in common – on HeyLets users only post positive experiences that inspire.
Whether it’s your favorite dirty dive, a delicious dumpling spot, or the best place to get free samples in the Ferry Building, HeyLets allows you to create a profile and then add your experiences. People can choose to follow you and wish list your experiences, and you can discover other great things in The City by wishlisting the dope shit that other people do. In other words, you’ll have hella new places to check out from people with similar interests to you.
To get more people involved in sharing rad experiences, I’m teaming up with HeyLets to do a sweet giveaway. Twenty-five random downloaders who have posted at least 1 experience, will receive a pair of HeyLets sunglasses and a HeyLets t-shirt. Plus the top 3 posters will get $100 towards their next experience AND a signed copy of my book Young Broke & Beautiful: Broke-Ass Stuart’s Guide to Living Cheaply!
