    To find a list of local service providers, you just need to go to the page where you will find your current location pre-selected. You can search for the service you are looking for by simply typing into a dialogue box.

    Once you hit the "Search" button, you will be directed to a page with recommendations. Search results are displayed along with Facebook's five-star rating system and user reviews. The results page also displays businesses' contact information, business hours and a map for directions.
