Google Places launched a new experimental feature today called, "People like you" to help you find more recommendations from people who do actually share your tastes.

"To do this, our system automatically compares the places you've rated against the places rated by other Google Places users, and identifies people whose taste overlap -- meaning you both tend to like and dislike the same places. Now, you can see all the places that people who are "like-minded" with you enjoy, since there is a very good chance you are going to love them too. Just click on people's nicknames to see their full set of recommendations," Google explained.
