Detailed Description

Update

Katango's mission is to restore simplicity to your social life by taming the tsunami caused by the social network era.

Katango's approach borrows a chapter from history. Back in the late 90's, Yahoo's directory-style curation of the World Wide Web didn't scale with the explosion of websites. Two guys from Stanford brought algorithms into the equation with Google and the rest is history. The social web is still in the manual phase, which isn't scaling with the explosion of our social graphs.(WHAT IS A "GRAPH") Katango aims to bring the social web into the algorithmic phase to improve our everyday online social experiences.
