The portal aims to be a movie review and discussion destination on social networks. The service helps aggregate movie reviews (from critics and audiences), videos, pictures, synopsis and other information, and presents them to the users. The service also integrates with Facebook, and allows a user to generate a personalized poster of his movie rating or of his choice to see or avoid a movie. People like to give their reviews and opinions on movies, and connect and converse with other people on their thoughts and movienation.in intends to enable people to connect on movies with its Facebook integration feature.
Meracoupons is a online couponing platform. the portal lists more than 1000 deals from more than 300 e-commerce websites, covering categories like electronics, gadgets, books, babies, online travel, food, entertainment and more. Currently the portal offers discounts across online retailers in India. In the future meracoupons.com aims to build functionalities on the site which will make its possible tointegrate the service with social media. Also, the discounts and offers will not just be restricted to India, the site will offer coupons from websites across the globe with localized deals.
Brook is a social media tool that emails users daily with the top five tweets from the Twitter users they select. It is designed to cut through the noise and makes sure users don’t miss out on important updates from friends, colleagues, brands, blogs, etc. After you set up Brook with the user accounts you want to be notified of, the service picks the best tweets, collates them and emails you just once a day. You can always go back and add more users. The web tool also allows you to categorize the users you’re following under different tags as you wish. The tool definitely saves time spent on the social networking site but if there are more than 5 important tweets in a particular day from an account you are likely to miss out.
