Prefound

Posted by joy


Prefound is yet another Web 2.0 site promoting social search. It’s been featured in a few news articles recently, so you may have heard of it. The idea behind the site is that you, the user, would share your bookmarks with others. This sharing of bookmarks would make search results more accurate.

Interesting note: It seems that Prefound, which is based in Kentucky is getting their initial search results from Eurekster, a New Zealand based search engine company whose search engine which learns from community behavior. Prefound also has a partnership with a company called Q-Phase.
