Social discovery has quickly become a leading trend in social media and social networking.  Users join specific communities that share interests, and learn of new people, places and things. Social discovery sites have recently experienced higher levels of growth than traditional social networking models.
Some examples of social discovery sites include Pinterest, TheFancy, Foursquare, Yelp, Highlight and Weotta.  
Social discovery sites are well positioned to promote products and services.  Mirroring the conditions of human search, users discover products and services that their social connections like and recommend.  This implies a higher level of performance in terms of conversion and sales, something a traditional social network generally lacks.
