Bizzy, a personalized local business recommendation engine, announced yesterday that it hit 100,000 favorites in just 10 weeks since its relaunch — that is, its members have supplied 100,000 recommendations on their favorite places to eat, shop and play. Bizzy is a service, accessible via its website and iPhone app , that recommends local businesses based on a user's favorites, as identified by answering questions about their favorite local spots, such as restaurants, nightclubs and shops. While 100,000 favorites doesn't initially seem like a big deal, it's important to note the speed with which this data has accrued, especially as compared to the early stages of other recommendation engines for local businesses, such as Yelp .
