Qype is a social network based around user reviews of businesses and places.
Founded in 2005 by German entrepreneur Stephan Uhrenbacher, the site allows its users to browse a database of locations and see at a glance those which have been most favourably rated by the community.
Members of the site can add new places to the existing database, rate and review businesses, add videos and photos and engage with the community via message boards, groups and messaging.
The site also has a mobile version which can enables users to locate the top rated place near to a specified location.
