Canada's Wajam Adds Comparison Shopping to Social Search Engine

Posted by Knowlton Thomas

Montreal-based social search startup Wajam has partnered with Shopping.com to add comparison shopping to its social search results.

Now the browser plugin displays content from YouTube, Amazon, and eBay to compare products and prices beside your friends' opinions while shopping online. 

Wajam is also now monetizing through affiliate links to Shopping.com, which represents a "glimpse of the potential future of social advertising."

The Canadian company has not taken any outside funding but now sits at 20 employees and continues to hire developers and other data-centric positions.
