Not sure about that outrageous outfit you found online and don’t feel like dealing with the hassle of returning it if your best friend thinks it isn’t a good look for you? Select2gether, a rapidly growing social shopping company, unveiled the first live, interactive online shopping tool at DEMO Fall 2010. WeLiket (We-like-it) enables Real-World Shopping™ through a virtual fitting room filled with friends and is the only shopping tool that allows users to save images and information about items including brand, description and price from any website.
“Shopping online should be as fun and social as a quick trip to the mall with friends. We’ve created an online shopping experience that does just that – connecting friends and enabling live, honest feedback from the people shoppers trust most,” says Jeany Stein, Founder and CEO of Select2gether.
Select2gether brings the live social element to online shoppers in an open environment that connects to all social networks so users can get live feedback and advice. After downloading a simple widget, users can instantly start a Live Showroom session where friends can view and discuss the items from any online retailer or discount shopping site on the fly. When shoppers are unsure about a trendy designer bag or a funky cocktail dress, they can simply add the item to the WeLiket toolbar, click “Ask your friends,” and enable the Live Showroom to get their friends’ opinions in real-time. Select2gether gives shoppers the trusted advice and honest feedback they need to make confident online shopping decisions.
Matt Marshall, Executive Producer of DEMO notes, “Social shopping is the next generation of online shopping, and Select2gether is driving the industry’s evolution with its unique, interactive shopping tool. DEMO is an ideal launch pad for WeLiket to debut in front of top technologists and investors.”
WeLiket and Live Showroom are available via mobile and PC now at select2gether.com/.
