OpenTable Delivers “Places I’ve Eaten” Facebook App
While the market is already glutted with myriad mobile and social media apps, here comes a new one.
OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), a leading provider of online restaurant reservations, has introduced its new Facebook app, “Places I’ve Eaten.”
The app allows people to share their dining history, favorite restaurants and wish lists with friends on Facebook.
It also enables people on Facebook to see where their friends have dined, see their own and their friends’ ratings, share recommendations, tag friends with whom they’ve dined and make reservations.

Leading travel site TripAdvisor also launched Local Picks, a Facebook app that provides dining recommendations from locals and friends to discover and choose the best places to eat. (Read: Hi Facebook Friends, Which is the Best Restaurant?)
“Places I’ve Eaten makes it easy for diners to share and be inspired by memorable dining experiences and to tap into their friends’ knowledge of local dining scenes,” said Scott Jampol, VP of Consumer Marketing at OpenTable.
Diners can add the restaurants they have visited through OpenTable to their Facebook Timeline, and the app allows diners to build a list of restaurants they want to visit and see which of their friends also have them on their wish lists or have already dined there.
OpenTable members who opt to use Places I’ve Eaten may keep their dining history private or allow the app to post to their timeline and be visible to some or all of their friends on Facebook. To find out more about it or access the web-based app, visit: http://www.opentable.com/PlacesIveEaten.
