Surfingbird

Russia now has its own collaborative content discovery service for the Web, SurfingBird.ru. The site is still in the beta phase. Its distinctive ‘share’ button has begun spreading among Russian websites including some important ones like RuTube.ru, the top Russian video hosting service.

Among a variety of social recommendation concepts, SurfingBird offers registered users an application to discover new sites based on declared interests and hobbies as well as on the ratings of like-minded members of the community.

“Today with search engines or social networks, you can reach only a small part of Web potential,” SurfingBird co-founder Sergey Shalayev told East-West Digital News. “With SurfingBird.ru, you can find sites offering high value content, but which you would never have found with Yandex or Google because they are not optimized for search engines. This is especially true for sites about photo, video, and other artistic activities.”
