A social search engine like folkd.com works pretty much like a normal search engine with two major differences:
Try it out now:
- We do not only rely on machines but on real people to discover the best websites.
- We can deliver better quality by serving results that your friends also like (and if you allow us to do so).
How does it work?
We started folkd.com not as social search engine but as a social bookmarking
service. So thousands of people stored their favorite links on our servers. After a while the best websites bubbled up by being bookmarked over and over again. So we made all these quality links available through our search form and the social search engine was born.
Why is it better than normal search?
First, people are not fooled as easily as machines - they only save a link if they think it is worth it. Second they often store additional information with a link - like a description or some helpful keywords. Using folkd you will get access to this additional knowledge to discover the web faster and find new websites you probably would have missed otherwise.
How to get started with social search?
Just use it, like you would use Google, Yahoo or bing: Type a query into the search box on the main page
. To get more relevant results we encourage you to sign up for free and connect to your friends or other people whose links you find interesting.
