What do you love?
No, I am not trying to get you to question what drives you or question what is the most important thing to you, or anything like that. ‘What do you love’, as I found out, is actually a new and very interesting website launched by no one else but Google.
In the unabashed manner in which Google now owns the terms ‘internet’ and ‘research’, making them inseparable in the minds of mortals like me, seems like Google is now going to do the same with ‘love’.
On first look it may come across as a cross between StumbleUpon, Pinterest, YouTube and anything else that you may have seen on Google, I mean ‘internet’. But as you start exploring, you will realise that it draws you into folds and folds of information that you willingly surrender to.
Driven by the challenge to show others ‘what Google makes’ and snowballing from one crazy idea to another (and crazy is what Google does), the objective was to come up with something that could ‘connect people to products they might not know about and may find useful, but make the discovery relevant to them and keep it fun’.
Fun is what Google does and what spells more fun than love. So Google wrote down the big question – ‘What Do You Love’, inviting you to please share, and then reciprocating with something you could love in more ways than one. The bottom line is it is definitely very entertaining and once you start, the answer to the question – ‘What do you love?’, will definitely be – Google (I do).
The categories you can get information on can be anything from pictures, videos, setting alerts, gadgets, setting up debates, discussions, reading blogs, checking events to attend, news and more. But don’t end up making this your ‘go to’ research tool. The information that you will get is content from Google’s own database, searches through every Google service known to man. In my opinion, the search engine giant is taking it as an opportunity to show off what they are masters of – content.
Type in to know more about something that you love, whatever strikes your fancy (and if you are the naughty sort, Google is smarter). So if you write down ANYTHING offensive it will lead you to the cutest thing ever – kittens).
So in true Google style they say – ‘No matter what it is, we’ll give you back something that will let you get even more into what you love’.
