What it does:
Wouldn’t it be great if you could discover people with tastes just like yours, and get recommendations for entertainment directly from them? They might live on the other side of the world, but have just the same taste in books as you do. This is our goal at RecThing.com: helping you find your “taste soulmates”. Then finding a new book or movie, or any kind of
entertainment, is easy: you just check over on RecThing.com and see what your taste soulmates are recommending.
How it beats the competition:
We aim to give much better results than standard recommendation engines by utilizing real people instead of brainless algorithms. We are like the matchmakers of the discovery engine business: instead of putting all our energy into making yet another discovery algorithm to recommend you new content, we are working hard to match people up with other similar minded people. Kind of like a dating site but without any of the dating!
