Kactoos is a social network service created by Kactoos Group and headquartered in Miami, Florida. Its slogan is “Shop together and save”. Kactoos is available in Spanish, English and Portuguese.
The site is not an online store, but a shopping platform that allows users to join groups in order to buy a particular item. The more users join a specific product’s group, the lower will its price be. This mechanism is known as Tuangou.
The system allows users to purchase products at the lowest price by creating groups of people who share a common interest. These groups can be created using different applications on social networks such as Facebook, Orkut or Sonico.
This service is also available for use with mobile devices such as iPhones or Blackberries. The integration of other services like Twitter is also useful to alert a user’s contacts about his or her online activities.
