There are three trends that are quickly heating up among start-up services – location-based, social, and Q & A sites. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to combine these three functions into a single web app that allows you to get answers about cities from your friends. Enter Locql, a local Q&A service that lets you ask about anything on any place, giving you tips on where to go or where to hang out.
To start using Locql, you can type into the search box a question or a place. View questions and answers from around the world or you can enter at least three cities to view recommended friends to follow. With the Your Places tab, you can ask a question directly or view a tab with questions about your place. Locql also finds where your computer is located and suggests questions about places nearby.
You only need a Facebook account to log into Locql. The cool thing about this tool is it allows you to associate profiles with cities, so that you can add friends you know lives in a city you may visit in the future, and get answers fast.
