Social discovery is now a leading trend in both social media and social networking. Users join a specific community based on an interest and discover new people, places and things. Social discovery sites are experiencing higher levels of growth than traditional social networking models. Some examples of social discovery sites include Pinterest, TheFancy, Tumblr, Highlight and Weotta.
Social discovery sites are extremely well positioned to promote products and services. Through the mirroring the conditions of human search, users are introduced to products and services through their social connection likes and recommendations. This suggests a higher level of performance in terms of conversion and sales, something a traditional social network generally lacks.
