This is one of the most ingenious ideas I’ve seen in some time. I have no affiliations with “crossrider.com”, but i ran across this brilliant plug-in that allows you to perform a google search with any of the major 3 browsers and in doing so when your results show up, it also populated the Facebook “likes” for each item in your search results.
The gist of the plug-in is that when you do a google search, not only do you see the results you intended, BUT you also see the amount of “Like’s” each search result has received over time, and whether or not any of your friends on facebook like that particular page/business/product.
This is a brilliant idea for those looking for services or other products, and while seeing the public’s view through facebook support (Likes), they can also see whether they know anyone using that item. In the event they are, then the searcher could call the existing supporter and say, “Hey, Tom. Saw you were a fan of Such and Such Dry Cleaners. Did they get the stains off your coat?”
So the general results look like the below, and when a mutual friend on Facebook likes the product of service, their pictures show up the the right of the search item.
So I give two thumbs up the Crossrider Team for coming up with this idea. Not only does it work well, but the plug in will down load in a matter of less than a minute. Keep in mind to see friend results, you have to be logged in facebook. Happy surfing.
