MONTREAL, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wajam (www.wajam.com), a leader in social search, today announced the launch of its newly designed and improved social search experience, (link to video) which gives users social search results everywhere they browse the web and adds new features to the Google search experience. Wajam's browser extension, launched last year, brought users the ability to receive social search results everywhere they searched, including Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor, YouTube and Ebay.
"Nobody knows you better than your friends," said Martin-Luc Archambault, Founder & CEO of Wajam. "We've incorporated over a billion pieces of data from our users' FaceBook, Twitter and Google+ profiles, allowing them to view what their friends have liked, commented, uploaded or linked to a particular search topic along side their regular search results. Social search powered by Wajam allows you to tap into to your friends wherever you conduct a search and filter your results by any combination of social sites and friends, relevancy, time of post, as well as by type, including links, photos and/or videos."
Intuitive Results Display – New design moves social search filtered results from top of page to the right side and gives users the option to show results from friends by default or to "hide results" 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 pictures. You can filter results by relevance or time.
More Info; Better Organized – 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.
Wajam offers two ways to search for social results – through its Social Search Everywhere Plugin as well as a search engine option at www.wajam.com. The Wajam Social Search Everywhere Plugin follows you everywhere you search, making search more personal by adding social network results to all web search queries – without having to change user search behavior. Wajam.com gives users a depository of everything your FaceBook, Twitter and Google+ friends and followers are posting and the easy ability to search through this comprehensive mashup.
