What it does:
SocialCompare is an innovative collaborative data community that allows everyone to consult, create, modify, translate and share comparisons in any domain. Anything such as products, services, objects, softwares, websites, people, politics, sports… can be compared. Users can create interactive tables using text, numbers, images, videos, ratings…. All the items could be compared together and be grouped to create new comparisons. Like a “Wikipedia of comparisons”, data are maintained in a collaborative way, centralized in one place and published under open licenses. Members can vote for their favorite content, share them on social networks, and embed them into their website.

How it beats the competition:
There is no real direct competition to our platform. Compared to other comparison websites, you can compare everything on SocialCompare (not only prices and products), content is under open license and reusable by differents matrix. Moreover compared to spreadsheets/databases oriented services, we are more community/social oriented where users can vote, rate and comment the content..
