Could this be the new Google? Webnumism is a very interesting new start-up beta which is rocking the net. Part search engine, yet still managing to be part multimedia gallery, Webmunism is a brand new way to find your favourite online pictures, best videos, albums, and information, online, easily, quickly and hassle free.
What’s new? Well, Webnumism sorts out its results into self-organizing categories. Each individual category is called or known as a “webmune” and is made up of all of the media and information which the “automatic categorization engine” sorts and places into each of the the webmunes. Confused? Well, in short, what that meant was that the search engine browses through services and organizes it cleverly into little folders.
They get their photos from Flickr, videos from Youtube, music and music data from Last.fm, book information and details from your local Amazon website and brief descriptions from Wikipedia for all of these things. Webnumism uses all of the individual APIs they provide to compile its results, and when you look at it, is really just a brilliant disguise for making a bit of extra cash through the AdSense that comes plastered to the bottom of each individual page, presumably in the hope that you’ll click on it.
The service, although still in Beta is fully functional, making money and raking in the visitors. The adverts are apparently to cover ‘operating charges and costs’ but the service itself will remain free instead. That’s what I like! As always is the case with Beta sites, they, (meaning the site) welcome feedback. Try it out yourself today at Webmunism.com now!
What do I like best? The slogan… Hehe!
