Aardvark Redesigns Website to Highlight Social Search
I’ve been continuing to enjoy my experience and use of Aardvark as a social search tool and service. Most of my involvement has been as someone that’s trying to help others with their questions.
I was recently contacted by Aardvark’s CEO, Max Ventilla, who let me know that they would be redesigning their website to highlight and promote the functionality of social search.
Following in the footsteps of ChaCha and the KGB, Aardvark takes the power of people to supply the energy and momentum behind their search. One of the differences that I really like about Aardvark is that it’s just available in the areas I’m already active. For me enjoying helping other people with questions, the fact that Aardvark simply instant messages me via Google Talk and shares the question that’s being asked.
If you’re on their new website and ask a question, keywords are pulled from the question and sent to the appropriate Aardvark user based on their identified expertise. Within a few seconds, an answer is provided and everyone’s happy.
Aardvark’s integration with existing systems and networks that can be used by anyone from anywhere can’t get much better. As long as they continue to revise and improve what they’re doing, I’m sure anyone who uses the service will be pleased with their experience.
Go visit the new Aardvark website and see what answers you can come up with. You never know, maybe I’ll be the one answering your question.
