When you have a terrible experience dining out, you can let the world know using the review app Yelp.

Yelp reviews make a big difference to a restaurant's bottom line, so your word actually carries weight. But when you have an awful experience at the airport security checkpoint, what can you do about it?

Well from now on, you can also record your TSA experience with the online review app. Now federal agencies and airport officials can claim and manage these pages to review comment, ratings and complaints.

They can also use Yelp to post safety precautions and give details about how the process works to speed it up for people who are unfamiliar.

"We're thrilled to have an agreement in place with General Services Administration which allows a two-way street of participation," Luther Lowe, Yelp's vice president of public policy, told Mashable. "Citizens can leave direct feedback about their government, and federal agencies can now join that conversation."

As of late, most airports only have a handful of reviews and low ratings. Over the coming months, I'm sure we'll see the number of reviews skyrocket. And as for the ratings? We'll just have to wait and see if they can make a jump as well.

Would you ever review your airport security experience on Yelp? Tell me why or why not in the comments section below.
