Hi there, some background on Heroic and Facebook: as a Heroic user, you can choose wether or not you would like to login or sign up using Facebook. If you do, you will be able to see which of your friends are using Heroic, and which businesses that they recommend. So to answer your question, Heroic is able to connect you with all of your friends that are also using Heroic. In the case that you are the first of your friends to use Heroic, you will automatically receive business recommendations from people near you - your neighbors. People have continued to tell us that they prefer recommendations from friends and neighbors, so the technology and optional integration with Facebook works to make that possible.

I used Consumer Checkbook to find an auto mechanic. The mechanic had a 100% rating based upon 21 reviews. However, after I moved I found a new mechanic recommended by a friend. It was then that I found out that the original mechanic didn't replace the water pump when they did a timing belt replacement even though they charged me for it. That ended my trust of Consumer Checkbook.
