Learning From Our Users

Last year, we launched the Wajam browser extension to give you social search results everywhere you browsed the web, in places like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor, YouTube and Ebay.

Learning from hundreds of thousands of users who made hundreds of millions of searches, we redesigned the whole user experience and packaged it in a convenient, unobtrusive new design that removes clutter from your search results page.

Simpler, Cleaner Design

The Wajam social search enhancer now appears as an icon on the right hand side when you search in Google, taking up less space and clutter on your desktop.

Intuitive Display: Your social search results are now shown on the right side of organic results. You can choose to show results from friends by default or set Wajam to “hide results” so to take up less space, only showcasing recommendations from friends when you need it.

Easy Filtering: You can easily pick and choose which social network you want results from, as well as filter results by friends by simply clicking on their profile picture. We currently support Google+, Facebook and Twitter, and are planning on supporting additional social networks in the near future.

The new design clearly breaks down number of results, organizing them by links, photos or videos, and lines up specific friends who have commented on the search term you searched. This gives you the ability to more easily filter results by specific friends, relevance or time.

New Design Rolls Out Today

Starting today, you’ll see the new design when you search in Google, and we’ll slowly roll it out onto more supported sites. Wajam— giving you the best in social search.
