Two ex-Googlers have just launched a new social platform and recommendation engine called Likaholix. With social sites seeming to pop up all over the place, it’s hard to stay on top of who’s who and which services do what. Here’s some more informaiton on Likaholix and how you can use it.
First, a little explanation of what exactly Likaholix is (from their website):
Likaholix is a fun and easy way to share and discuss your likes and discover new ones with people you know. You can like anything from a great book you have read to your favorite food to some art work that you love.
We have found that recommendations from friends, whose tastes, you trust are usually much better than most reviews on the web. Most people, when they are out on social occasions with friends, find themselves exchanging notes and discussing things that they like. We hope to bring the same experience online with Likaholix. Likaholix serves as both a self-expression and a recommendation tool. We provide personalized recommendations based on the people, topics and items you like.
How to “like” something:
Liking something is extremely easy. Simply type whatever it is that you like into the search bar and hit search. The site will then return multiple results. When you select what it is you want to like you’ll see the box below, simply fill out each field and add relevant pics and/or videos from the right and hit submit. That’s it!
Once you’ve liked something it will show up in your profile for other to check out, like, comment, and share. Here’s what it looks like:
Likaholix, it seems, has found yet another new way to build a community through social bookmarking. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to check out the quick tour over at Likaholix, and of course because it is still in private beta, if you’d like, you can request an account here.
