A friend asked me yesterday, “How does Facebook’s new Graph Search impact Wajam?”
Simply put, the launch of Graph Search validates what we are doing here at Wajam, which is to help you search through content that your friends share with you every day.
Tap Into the Knowledge of Your Friends
Facebook is doing a great job connecting people together, and with Graph Search, you can now find more meaning from your social interactions. By tapping into your network of friends, you can easily:
- Find people who are as passionate as you about swing dancing.
- Discover which restaurants your friends have been to and like best.
- Find long lost high school photos.
At Wajam, we believe in the same values as Facebook— what your friends share matters. We’re working hard to make it easy for you to tap into the knowledge of your friends and give you personalized recommendations on your favorite websites.
Get Recommendations Across Social Networks
Our mission is to connect you to any one of your preferred social platforms, not just Facebook, and show you recommendations from your friends when you need it the most.
Wajam lets you choose which platforms you’d like to filter results from— Facebook, Twitter and/or Google+— and then gives you recommendations that your friends have shared on those social networks.
Wajam Brings Together Facebook And Google
With the launch of Graph Search, Facebook is giving you more options to find relevant social data from friends. Google launched a similar feature earlier this year dubbed Search Plus Your World, connecting to their social offering Google+.
Both of these services are great within their own platforms, but Wajam takes the idea one step further by giving you recommendations from your friends on many other websites and also third party applications on your mobile phone. In effect, we enhance your search experience by bringing these great social platforms to you when you need it.
Wajam brings the best of all worlds. You get more social platforms to choose from, and you’re shown results on sites where you search already.
The Wajam social search engine indexes recommendations from your friends from social networks you choose, and then shows you results on supported sites like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Amazon, TripAdvisor, Wikipedia, eBay and more.
