Social search plug-in Wajam has added two new video features that add relevant videos your friends have watched and recommended on top of search engines. You can also now see the latest videos your friends have shared on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ directly in Youtube. This is a very useful tool for those of us who are looking for trailers, dev diaries and other studio-related videos.
Another recent addition to Wajam is product recommendations. For example, if you search for tablets in Google, Bing or Yahoo, you can now see related products as well as friends who have talked about this product. In addition to that, Wajam also shows you related products so that you can see what your friends are saying about those products.
Add these new features to those already present in Wajam, including Wajam Places, which was launched September, and Wajam is becoming a powerful search tool to source information from your social network connections. The example used by Wajam shows that if you search for something in the city of Montreal, you can also find:
- Your friends who live in Montreal
- Photos taken by your friends in Montreal
- Local restaurant recommendations
- Health and fitness locations in the area
- Hotels and lodging
- Shopping recommendations
- Sights to see and venues to visit
