    Ignoring design, what do you think of the concept?
    The most important feature I see, after just a couple minutes at your site, is the ability to review stuff, and use my social network to filter and help me find stuff I might want.  This is an idea that needs to happen.  Now, why this isn’t already done at Facebook, I can’t guess.  This idea isn’t all that novel.  I had actually considered starting something similar, and I doubt I’m alone.  Funding, if you need it, may be complicated by how easy it would be for Facebook to squash your startup.  If you can do it without funding, or just friends and family money, I say go for it.
    Is the user interface easy to use?
    I haven’t signed up, but it looks simple enough.  It certainly didn’t scare me.
    Can you find everything you are looking for?
    No.  Having some standard most popular categories is a great idea, but I believe that if you let users create categories of stuff they want to review, you’d find that there are hundreds to thousands of categories people care about.  Where’s wine?  Resturants?  Dog breeds?  Cars?  There are huge fan clubs for way to many areas to list.  Of course, the site only claims to deal with multimedia, and in that context, you’ve covered the biggest areas.A
    What are you looking for that doesn’t seem to be there?
    A compelling reason to sign up.  There’s always that hurdle… my friends aren’t on the site, so why should I be?  It’s the standard problem faced by web-startups and unknown authors.
