A growth area for interesting ideas to solve an age-old challenge:
Delver is a socially connected search company; a next-generation web search engine - what we call a Connected Search Engine - that improves the relevancy of web search results by prioritizing these results based upon the searcher’s social network. Delver uncovers the wealth of knowledge from users’ online connections in a useful and enjoyable way.
We co-founded Delver because we recognized a strong need for people to find information created or referenced by their friends and friends-of-friends. Delver supports a spirit of open interchange where the wisdom of a person’s social network can contribute to that individual’s search success. Existing search engines do not account for who a person is and what that person’s network finds valuable. Delver makes search more significant to the user by organizing friends’ tags and information found on social networking profiles, blogs, bookmarks, photo and video sharing sites rather than basing results upon the popularity of a given page or Web site.
