July 8th Event. Social Search.

Social Search

Will Community Wisdom Take Search and Discovery to the Next Level?

With your moderator Safa Rashtchy, join a lively discussion with

  • Facebook’s Ari Steinberg,
  • FriendFeed’s CEO Bret Taylor,
  • Mahalo’s CEO Jason Calacanis, and
  • Wikia Search‘s Jeremie Miller

on what up-and-comers are doing to provide improved search and discovery capabilities through the wisdom of the crowd and how it will impact the overall consumer web search marketplace. We will address questions such as:

  • What is social search and discovery? Why and how does it enhance the user experience?
  • What are the potentials for social search –what are its limitations?
  • When will social search reach an inflection point?
  • What are the best platforms/networks or technologies for social search and discovery?
  • Who are the most successful existing platforms on social search and discovery?
  • Will social search supplement or replace current search and discovery processes?
  • What types of players are best positioned to capture the largest market share?
  • What are the roles of social networks and “traditional” search sites in this new area?
