AskFriends is a Facebook application. AskFriends allows you to ask questions to your friends about products before making a purchase. Users can also create a quick poll with multiple products. E.g. Which computer should I buy? a) Macbook Air b) Lenovo U400 c) Sony vaio Z123
To start with, askfriends currently uses data from amazon and we are working on adding more stores.
Besides reading generic reviews, users will be able to capitalize on social influence to get shopping suggestions.
Once enough data is collected, it will be easy to build a recommendation engine, shopping comparison and other business intelligence tools.
