Social bookmarking goes shopping with Stylehive

sitelogo.pngToday I checked out Stylehive, a new social bookmarking website all about shopping.
It goes live for public browsing tomorrow.

As a free member of Stylehive, you can:

– Discover new brands, products, designers, stores, and experts

– Use the Stylehive’s special tags to build a personalized list. For example, use the wish list tag to build a customized birthday gift shopping list.

– Easily share your shopping finds with other like-minded shoppers, family, and friends

– Discover stylish experts in the Hive and follow favorite designers, brands and shopping topics

– Collaborate easily with groups of people on topics such as home design or designer handbags

– Promote yourself, your blog, your products or your retail store to the Stylehive community

Generally I think that this looks like quite a cool site. It’s certainly well designed, and already there are some great items to spend your dollars on. A nifty web2.0 idea too – A service like this could really take off with the punters. Stylehive may just take social bookmarking to a wider audience than ever will.

I’m not entirely sure that as a “consumer” I have a social shopping problem that I need to solve. The ability to build wish lists could take off though. I wonder if they’ve thought about a wedding gift registry? That could work (just a thought from someone who recently became engaged).

As with all Web2.0 stuff, it’s a little America centric right now … but hopefully there are enough non US bloggers to turn that table over. Thanks to Emily Chang for the invite.

  1. Hi Ben, thanks for checking out the Stylehive and the terrific review about us on your blog. Perhaps there is a use for collaborating with your fiance on caterers, invitations, venues, florists, honeymoon destinations and other wedding planning essentials. Cheers and congrats on your recent engagement! Stephanie Wong – Editor, Stylehive
