Facebook fanatics will never have to suffer a bad restaurant again thanks to the recent launch of the My Guide application.

My Guide allows those hooked on Facebook to access reviews of over 330,000 restaurants, bars and clubs, in 19 countries around the world.

Users can create their own personalised entertainment and dining guide on their profile page, by writing their own reviews, recommending their favourite venues to friends, and making a wishlist of venues they would like to visit.

My Guide co-founder Chris Kettle said they hoped My Guide would help people discover some of the many hidden restaurants and bars out there.

"If you've ever thought 'wow I never knew that existed', or 'oh wow that place looks good to try' then My Guide is for you. We're really combining the off and online worlds," Kettle said.

My Guide was created by the guys behind my247.com.au, Australia's largest publisher of dining and entertainment guides on the internet and on the mobile phone.

Kettle said it was obvious to him and his team that by integrating the my247 website with Facebook they could offer great benefits to users.

"When you stumble across a really great place to go out there's nothing better than sharing it with your friends, except maybe being told about an even better place by someone else. This is what My Guide will facilitate."

The creators of My Guide have also joined forces with live booking engines Booking Angel in Australia, OpenTable in the US and TopTable in the UK to allow users to make instant bookings at over 10,000 restaurants.

Kettle says they also hope to further develop the application to allow users to add and recommend live music, shows, events, movies and exhibitions like they can on the web and on mobile.

"There's just so much potential for this application to expand, I think people are going to be thrilled with the ways they can use it," he said.
