CrowdFound : Social Discovery Engine

SMS Text

The founders of this social-networking, social bookmarking site with people powered categorization of content hoped to provide a topic centric approach rather than a people centric approach to content on the web.

At CrowdFound, users get to categorize article on the web into predefined categories and sub-categories. While the features have lot of similarity with the social bookmarking sites, the emphasis here is on letting content be the center of social networks rather than people.

A quote from the article at iTwire

CrowdFound claims that “this direct topic-based interfacing will allow users to rapidly identify other users’ interests in a particular topic and then communicate with each other in a topic-centric community.”

There are some nifty features to be found there that will appeal to all ( I bumped across a video of Guy Kawasaki’s presentation on entrepreneurial must-haves). The site is a good try.

    Is this in some kind of private beta? I went to the site and all I saw was the logo and an e-mail address.

    Same here, it shows logo and email…when can we expect the real thing? Social media is a pet passion and like seeing the angles people are taking….

    Hello to all. The site was indeed up and running when I visited it. Will post on the site as soon as I can get some information. My apologies to all :)

    Must be the Search Engine Journal Effect crashing the site :)

    Sorry folks, it was up and running when this was put together. Hopefully Crowdfound will be getting something working soon.

    The site has gone under and went broke last year sometime.
