How do I unlink my yelp from Facebook?

Answer

  1. Go to the Account Settings.
  2. Section of your account.
  3. Click External Applications.
  4. Click Disconnect from Facebook.

If you have linked your Facebook to make a Yelp account, you can go to your Account Settings (click on the gear icon in the top right corner) and select “Facebook” under Social. Hit “Unlink Facebook”. Once unliked, we will delete all of the information that we received from Facebook about your Yelp profile. Please note: We cannot unlink Facebook if you have not already claimed your Yelp profile. To claim, please navigate to the review section for any business page on Yelp.com and hit the ‘claim this business’ button at the bottom of any business’s reviews. This will take you through a few more steps where you’ll be asked to add some details about yourself such as name, birth date etc.

Once you’ve claimed your Yelp account, come back and unlink Facebook.

Note: Your name will not be public on Yelp until you claim it. When you click ‘claim this business’, we post a message to everyone in the area that says something like ‘Jane Smith is claiming their review of XYZ Salon.’ At that point, anyone can go into the reviews section for XYZ Salon and see Jane’s full profile (including name) and her review of XYZ Salon. We do this so people don’t feel hesitant about posting an honest review because they’re afraid someone will know who they are or where they live.

I think my yelp reverted to a default list of 5 businesses – how do I add more?

If you are looking for your list of favorite businesses to be maintained when you zoom out on the map, make sure you have claimed your Yelp profile. If you haven’t claimed your account, we will not save a business that you’ve been to recently. In order to prevent personal information from becoming public on Yelp, we only sync review content with Facebook if someone has claimed their Yelp profile page. (see above).

When claiming your account, you’ll select some basic details about yourself and then add a photo and upload a background image. Then all future reviews that come through from Facebook will show up under your name/photo as well as other activities on Yelp because it’s associated with your personalized yelp account now!!

Keep in mind, your email address will not be public. If you choose to enter it, only other yelps who have that email address can contact you via Yelp messages.

I just tried to claim my yelp from Facebook but I’m getting an error about the business closing too long ago

Unfortunately this is a bug with our software which has since been fixed. We are sorry for the inconvenience and suggest that you try claiming again.

If you’re still having problems please go to our Help Center and let us know what happened! http://www.yelp-support.com/contact_us

How do I check or edit my profile?

I’m a business owner/manager and I want to claim my company’s Yelp page for myself (and not have it listed under ‘manage this page’). How do I do that?

If you are interested in claiming your business’ Yelp Page so that all updates will be displayed under your name/photo instead of under “Yelp Staff,” there is a very small group of users who qualify for this status. The requirements are:

1.) Your company already has at least 10 Yelp reviews.

2.) You are a verified email address on Yelp for the business that you are claiming.

If you meet these requirements, please navigate to http://www.yelp.com/claimthisbusiness and fill out the short form. Once your account is claimed, all updates will be displayed under your name photo instead of under “Yelp Staff.” Note: If your yelp page is currently set to not show “Yelp staff” as the author when we make an update, this setting will change once you claim it from our site (and ‘Yelp Staff’ will start to show up). We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience caused by this.

I am a business owner/manager and I would like to remove my company’s Yelp page. How do I do that?

If you no longer wish to have a Yelp listing for your business, please fill out the short form at http://www.yelp.com/removebusiness . This will permanently disable your business’ listing on our site. Note: You can always claim your business’ page again in the future if you change your mind! There is no way to delete it permanently from our site unless you choose this option.

I’m a business owner/manager and I want to remove all attributions about my company on Yelp. How do I do that?

If you are affiliated with a business that has been deleted from Yelp, please fill out the short form at http://www.yelp.com/removebusiness . This will permanently add your yelp profile as an affiliation to the business page or website (which in turn will make it so that your name no longer shows up anywhere). Note: You can always claim your business’ page again in the future if you change your mind! There is no way to delete it permanently from our site unless you choose this option.

Why aren’t reviews of businesses other than restaurants appearing anymore?

We are working hard to bring more content to the site in a variety of formats. We believe that more reviews is better, and we want to continue adding new types of reviews that people can contribute. As we add new review formats, you will see the number of reviews on Yelp increase and there should be no drop-off in non-restaurant related reviews. Also, please keep in mind that businesses may not allow us to show all their reviews or may choose not to have any listed at all for privacy reasons, so it’s possible some businesses don’t appear at all even if they’ve been reviewed! In addition, certain searches may yield fewer results than others because they’re pulling from different lists of data (e.g. cafe’s with reviews we’re not showing for all businesses, posts on groupon that won’t display in the future). We’ve also made changes to our search algorithm recently that will help prevent certain businesses from appearing inappropriately.

Why are some reviews hidden?

We have to protect both users and business owners by making sure everyone has a positive experience using Yelp. However, there are two common reasons why a review might be considered inappropriate by us and thus hidden or dismissed: 1) It violates Yelp’s Content Guidelines (http://www.yelp.com/guidelines_content ) – Please see below for more details about these guidelines; 2) The review was posted from a yelp mobile application but does not come from a registered user – Yelp was designed to connect real people with great local businesses and we take the authenticity of these connections very seriously. If you do not see a name or photo associated with a review, it’s from an anonymous mobile device and we hide these reviews as they violate our trust.

Why is my positive/negative review still showing up after I’ve deleted it?

Yelp has no way to independently verify every single review that gets posted on our site, so while we make efforts to ensure users are only posting reviews for which they have first-hand experience, inevitably some do get through that shouldn’t be there. In addition, because thousands of new reviews go up each day (and over 15 million total at this point!) and because our users are constantly reading and writing reviews, Yelp’s software unfortunately cannot detect which posts have already been hidden by the business owner. That means that some review you deleted may still show up on a search result for your company, but will be hidden from other viewers. Sometimes this also happens with positive reviews after they’ve been up for awhile or have received enough votes (they drop off the front page). We’re working hard to improve these algorithms so we can catch more of them, but in the meantime, if you continue to see unwanted content on your profile, please contact us at http://www.yelp-support.com/goto_chat .

How does my business get removed?

The reason why your business is showing up on Yelp in the first place is because you have given us permission to display your basic business information like address, phone number, website URL and hours of operation. If you would like to remove your listing from the site, from the “My Account” page click “Edit” next to your company’s name on the Business Ownership page . Once there, make sure you select “Remove my business” (it so that your name no longer shows up anywhere). Note: You can always claim your business’ page again in the future if you change your mind! There is no way to delete it permanently from our site unless you choose this option.
