Search With A Little Help From Your Friends

Very cool feature announced today on blekko: /likes. You're friends are curating the web every day when they go out and click the "like" button on any web site. But, for the most part, their hard work only shows up on your Facebook feed. Wouldn't it be nice if you could use that info in a more useful way - like, i don't know...search?

Now you can with our new feature: /likes. When you log into blekko via FB Connect, we now grab from their API all the sites you and your friends have liked. We automatically take that data and create a slashtag for you called /likes. Search just the sites your friends have blessed by adding /likes to any search query. Pretty cool, eh?

/likes is yet another way you can say goodbye to spam, content farms and, well, any site your friends don't tell you is cool. Seeing your friends names in your search results is an eyeopening experience. Completely changes how you view search results.

Rich's take is here. Friends make search better. Go check it out and let us know what you think!
