Starup: a friendly solution to consumer choice

    Hi All

    I'm thinking over a startup idea in the social media/e-commerce space that addresses the problem of consumer choice in a friendly (literally!) manner. You expose a couple of products to your friends in social networks and get the products rated and commented.

    Not sure whether this should be a website, a mob app, or say a Facebook app... Neither I have any ideas on how to monetize it ))

    Please-please-please have a look at this 10 sec presentation, which roughly describes the idea, and give your feedback.

    Lots of thanks in advance!

    Thanks, Sophia_M !  I'm so happy the forum is alive, as I wasn't really sure) 

    When you say "go shopping with it" , do you mean it would be great to have friends' past suggestions at hand or you'd prefer to get the products rated in real-time?

    Yep, I'm think of a website + a facebook app. .. Agree with GTOoptions scalability may be an issue..

    Its a good thought of doing so, but would not be that successful as its going to be in limit. It would give you a good start but is not going to expand as you might be thinking off.

    I love your idea! It will be really nice to share what I'm planning to buy with friends and getting advice from them, more importantly, enjoying the fun of selecting together! I think I'll prefer it to be a mobile app, so that I can go shopping with it.
