Seesaw, the decision making service, has an updated iPhone app that features several new tools to help discover decisions people are mulling over. Perhaps the two that are the most notable include an enhanced Explore view giving you featured users and timelines, and a search tool that lets you look up information by user and/or hashtag.
Having launched earlier this month, Seesaw is the latest project from the founding team of the social media marketing platform CoTweet, which was acquired by ExactTarget. It’s billed as a service that can help you make decisions quickly. But unlike Polar and Thumb, Seesaw’s social network is based on who you have in your mobile phone contacts — it’s not about having strangers offer their opinions, but rather those who you consider friends and trust.
However, just because you’re soliciting feedback from your friends doesn’t mean other people shouldn’t chime in as well. Seesaw is definitely a social network in of itself and other users can certainly follow and befriend others in the app.
With the addition of a search feature, users are now able to look up specific polls or decisions that are weighing on their friends’ minds. To help encourage the use of hashtags and spark community engagement, periodically, Seesaw has been asking users to tag their polls with specific hashtags. Whether it’s about the interiors of a home (#interiors) or what’s for dinner (#whatsfordinner), users can now search for who’s sharing what and their dilemma.
The app also now includes featured users and timelines, which will most undoubtedly help others discover new people and maybe understand what questions they have — who knows, it might be the same as theirs.
Other updates to the app include enhanced profiles with the inclusion of websites and bios and improved notifications.
