for Personal Recommendation
Micro Sharing Service
Likaholix is a brand new web portal that lets you share your personal and favorite recommendations about virtually anything with the world. The tool lets you build a list of things you like and recommend with the help of a pre-populated database of items (think books, movies, tv shows, products, etc.) readily available and put together from sources from across the web.
For each of those list or categories, Likaholix provides you with list of landing pages with descriptions, various topics centered around the items along with relevant image and video material so youâ€™d have a central point to add information about stuff instead of having to copy and paste from multiple sources.
The service, which is sort of like a Twitter for personal recommendations, is still in private alpha. The company is currently giving away Amazon Kindle devices to 5 lucky beta testers, so be ready when you get an invite.
Likaholix was founded by Bindu Reddy and Arvind Sundararajan, a former Google Product Manager and Senior Staff Engineer, respectively. Both were among the key people behind GMail, Google Base, Google Docs, AdSense and Google Video.
