Folowen Goes to Public Beta, Adds Direct Follow

23 Jun, 2009

Folowen the Jordanian startup which was previously reviewed by ArabCrunch here, has just gone out of private beta, which means people can start using folowen without an invitation code. Folowen is a search tool that uses Google AJAX Search API to help you find profiles of people and organizations in different social media sites (currently 20.)

The new features Folowen has added are:

- Search is now open to the public without sign up.

-Their promised “Direct Follow” feature has arrived, where you can follow or add the person/organization you searched for directly from the search results page to your social media service. This feature is currently available for four services: Twitter, YouTube, FriendFeed and Facebook. Though you have to sign up to follow in and authorize folowen to access these services, under the settings tab.

-Now your search results will list up to 4 links for each service for you to browse through.

Folowen is still working in adding more features such as social alerts and a browser plug-in.
