This paper introduces a preliminary approach and evaluation for a social recommendation mechanism for location-based services (LBS). Many approaches for recom- mending location-based services do not take into account other factors than spatial ones. This paper focuses on social interactions and a focused ranking method to support social recommendations. The qualitative and quantitative evaluation at the end of the paper demonstrates, that users find social recommendations more useful than the conventional ones.
