1. ThisNext

Analysis & Reviews:

ThisNext is about discovering, recommending and spreading the word about products and services you love (shopcasting). This is a very good site especially for us because a user can post his/her recommendation directly to Myspace page from this site.

You can create your own badge, recommend to your friend, post the same in blogs, and other websites. I highly recommend this site to include in the master list.

I have done the beta testing for andersondirect using my personal gmail account, as a user to recommend 2007 Acoord Sedan. Please, check the url -

Below lies the screenshot for the customized badge.

Note: We can post the customized badge directly to Myspace, and blogger without embedding the code.

2. Wink

Reviews: Wink is a relative newcomer, but its amazing search capabilities have earned it a strong following. In addition to the bookmarks users submit and store, Wink also scrapes tags from, Yahoo My Web and Flickr. Wink's unique PeopleRank feature lets users rate the quality of each search result hit with a simple five-star system.

My Rating: Good: Roughly the same storage features as, but a better search engine. The ability to manually sync with lets you use both in conjunction. We can consider this site for SMO strategy.

6. PBWiki


PBwiki is a commercial wiki farm.According to Alexa, it has greater traffic and reach than competitors Wetpaint and Wikispaces, though less than Wikipedia.

My Rating: Excellent. This is a very nice site. We may try for personal webpage about the products/services

7. Autospies


AutoSpies, the popular automotive site, has just relaunched as a full-blown Digg clone. The new functionality was added after the acquisition of AutoCast Technology, a web-ranking service that allows users to review, post and rate stories. The setup is an unabashed copy of Digg: when users find a relevant story, they post it to AutoSpies and allow other users to rate and comment on it.

My Rating: Overall Good.

8. Wikia


Wikia offers free wiki hosting for your community. You can join a wiki on any topic that you're passionate about. If one doesn't exist - you can create it! Wikia gives users the ability to easily rate and review area business. You can create a page for your business; share a gripe about the school board; post a notice about a zoning waiver; build a database of important local government contact info; the possibilities are endless. Each town's section will be as good as the town's citizens wish it to be.
