Snoox Social Recommendations Service Is Launched
On 14th November 2012, Snoox, was launched. It is a new social recommendation service that lets you share recommendations on everything with your friends.
Snoox is similar to Pinterest, in that you create themed collections of stuff you find on the web, but instead of stuff you want, like or wish you had, etc, it is all about sharing recommendations, from TV shows, travel destinations, music, etc. The best part is you are sharing them with your friends, which is great because the most influential recommendations come from our real friends.
When you go to Snoox.com and connect your Facebook account you are prompted to add some of the things you wish to recommend. You can then put all of your recommendations into a single collection called a “display”, or you can create different collections for different topics, like movies, music, etc. When you head to the Snoox homepage, you will also see a collection of your friends’ recommendations.
If you like something that one of your friends recommends you can “Snoox It” to add it to one of your collections.
Some of the recommended products even have options to let you purchase the item, allowing you to click to buy directly from your friend’s recommendation.
