Social Search with Google Maps

Wajam is social search extension for your browser that gives you access to the knowledge of your friends when you search with Google, Bing, Yahoo, Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor, YouTube and Ebay.

After you install the search extension on your computer you can log-in with Facebook, Twitter or Google+ to get access to all your friends' social recommendations.

One really neat function of Wajam is that it shows places your friends have recommended on a Google Map. For example, if you are searching for a restaurant you can quickly visualise all the venues that your friends have recommended.
