March 21, 2008 - PRLog -- PALO ALTO, CA – Helpr Inc. announced today that it has opened the its social recommendations application “DoYa” to Facebook users.

“This is a very exciting day for us.” says Alson Kemp, CEO. He continued, “With the launch of DoYa, (as in “Do ya know a good…?”) individuals will no longer have to rely on the recommendations of strangers but rather can get trusted recommendations for local businesses and service providers from their friends. In addition, local businesses and service providers now have a suite of tools available to them which will help them effectively establish and gain insight about their presence on social networks.”

Launched as a closed beta in January 2008 to a small group of friends and associates, the application quickly grew as users realized its value and invited their friends. “The feedback and response that we’ve gotten so far has been tremendous” said Kemp, “the number of people and businesses using the system grew much more rapidly than we had anticipated and to the point where we decided to open the beta to the public.”

Interested parties can obtain the application by going to (or searching for “DoYa” in the Facebook application directory) and adding the application to their Facebook profile. Once added, individuals can use the application to recommend any of the 16 million business and service provider listings currently in the database. Users can also browse the recommendations of their friends and actively reach out and ask them for a recommended business or service provider.
