|Description||Social Cataloging Site|
|Seed, 8/2009 |
OurShelf is a social cataloging site that generates personalization information, enabling users to lend, manage their belongings and find the items they need faster and cheaper. Users save money from borrowing short-use items from friends and make money from selling their unused items to multiple third-party sites, like ebay and craigslist.
OurShelf provides users with a digital shelf. Users can catalog their belongings through an import functionality or OurShelf’s search engine. A populated shelf empowers users by creating a highly personalized shopping and item management experience. OurShelf achieves this by laying an item graph (complete with related items and reviews) over a social graph. Itâ€™s like del.icio.us, except for the physical goods users own.
As of August 2009, OurShelf has garned 400+ Users, 2500+ items cataloged, and 3000+ items shelved since its beta launch, and has write-ups on a variety of popular web sites and blogs.
