29 Jan Wiki Has Now Got Its Rival Sister Amapedia
Wiki now has a new rival sister– Amapedia, a community for sharing information about the products people like the most launched by Amazon.com (AMZN). As many of you would have guessed, Amepedia will be a commercial site. You have to be registered with Amazon.com to be able to use Amapedia services.
Where is the content from?
Amapedia offers content previously created in Amazon.com’s ProductWiki feature, (a section of a website, where users can add and edit content freely.)
With the launch of Amapedia as the next generation of Amazon.com’s ProductWiki feature, Amazon is capitalizing on opportunities missed during the several years before the Web 2.0 frenzy. At that time Amazon was the site that contained user-generated content and social networking features, but that site was not able to live up to a site independent from Amazon shopping. So now Amazon is making a comeback with an attempt to cater to an even larger segment of new groups of web consumers.
