Is RecommendBox another social bookmarker?

Web 2.0

“Not another social bookmarker!”, I can hear you cry out in anger. Ahh yes, technically speaking it is…but RecommendBox is different, in that you ‘recommend’ a link to your friend list, and not just ‘review’ it and give your opinion on whether it’s good or not.

Sound confusing? Well, it’s essentially still a social bookmarker – a UK one at that – but with your recommendations remaining private, it’s less pimptastic and more worthy links being promoted. Plus, the site has Amazon and Google Local APIs integrated, so when you recommend something, or view a recommendation, you get targeted products and search queries suggested to you.
