Wowd delivers search results that real people find interesting.

Oh Joy ... a search engine for Facebook.

I'm not too worried about the "social web" .. My experience is such that says that people bore easily, and searching for "when someone washes the car park" will get old.

Sites like Wowd, will do us all the good turn of diverting all of the internet rubbish into one area so that those of us that want to learn something, or find something, won't have to look at it ..
