Looking to create a more community appreciative environment, Yelp revealed that their new interface will become more photo-centric. Using popular pictures taken by Yelp users, the new design highlights six large thumbnails of photos taken at the location at the very top of each business’ page.
Now replacing the old format where the tiny thumbnails showed nothing for at least two clicks, users can get an eyeful of gratuitous food porn as soon as they click the restaurant link, plus more photos embedded within the reviews themselves. After all, those precious seconds definitely matter when figuring out where you want to eat.
