Recipe Search Engine Goes Social With Facebook
Foodily, a search engine for comparing recipes, said today it wants to make cooking more social via an integration with Facebook.
Recipes “liked” on Foodily will appear in a users’ Facebook feed, and recipes that others like will appear in a Foodily recipe search.
Foodily also now lets people create a Facebook event invitation that includes a menu, allowing friends to see what dishes are planned for events like dinner parties or pot lucks. Friends can comment on the menu, share their feedback and add additional dishes they want to bring.
“Food is the most social thing we do," said Andrea Cutright, CEO and co-founder of Foodily, "People want to do more than just pick a recipe off the shelf, they want to compare and share those decisions with people in their life.
“With so many recipe choices available online, Foodily lets people see and benefit from the decisions that their friends and family have already made, making it easier to find the right one for the right occasion.”
