Timewasters: Tastekid

By William Rooney

Similar to the popular site StumbleUpon, Tastekid plays to user’s likes and dislikes as it sifts through the internet for you. Though not a search engine, Tastekid instead provides recommendations. By saving your searches Tastekid can refine results to those that it thinks are similar to your interests as you search. You can search in categories, and even input completely different interests at the same time to give the site more data. With an account, you can go even farther, disliking and liking results for stronger hints at your musical or literary tastes. The site is available on by Android or iPhone app, and can be optionally integrated into sites like Facebook and Twitter.
