And today the wait is over with the debut of Jig, a Q&A meets recommendations site.
As fellow co-founder Nick Nguyen writes on Jig’s blog, Our Jig is a website, one that helps you with your needs– by making it easy to share them with people who can help solve them. We built Jig to make it easy to describe what you need with just a few words.
On Jig, you can both try to find something that you ‘need,’ help someone find something they need, search for needs by keyword, or invite others to help solve a problem or meet a need. For example, you can post a need to the Jig community (i.e. I need a new designer for my website, I need a new logo, etc) and then members can suggest solutions, or invite a friend to help.
You can sign in with both Twitter and Facebook to populate your social graph, create a profile with your personal information and follow people on Jig, similar to Quora. You can also specify your ‘affiliations’ which allows you to connect a group of users who share something in common with you. It’s essentially a group-forming feature within the platform.
