Social shopping service, Nuji
has re-launched its website: Nuji.com
. For those of you unfamiliar with Nuji and its offerings, Nuji is a web service to help shoppers store and discover products that they are interested in, using an online library.
Users build collections by tagging items in online shopping sites using Nuji's digital bookmarklet, scanning barcodes using their mobile phones, or simply taking a picture of items they are interested in. Nuji allows you to synchronize these lists on to your profile, find people with similar tastes to you and receive notifications from retailers about deals and offers on items you have shown an interest in.
If there is a particular retailer that tickles your fancy you can follow them via Nuji to receive news about all of their latest offerings. These are displayed along with updates from people you're following in a flowing, twitter-style feed. There is also the option for users to share their wish list on Facebook.
Nuji has come a long way since we covered them back in Issue 26
in our Small But Perfectly Formed
section. The site was only founded last December but the Nuji community has grown dramatically, and the service has logged over 80,000 products from 7,000 online stores - including Urban Outfitters and Couverture and the Garbstore - in the process. Quite impressive for a small, London-based start-up.
The new and improved site is "invite only" but Contagious readers have been given priority access to check it out. Click on the link below for your invite:www.nuji.com
