A recommendation from your friend or family member carries a lot more weight than a recommendation from someone you don't know, right? We tend to trust people we know, so it makes sense that someone's opinion is worth more coming from a friend.
I value a recommendation from someone I know much more than from a random online review. Ultimately, they are all data points and I see recommendations from someone I know as bigger data points that carry more weight.
