Food. It’s something we spend a lot of time on, when I post links to good restaurants or the food I am eating, I always get a response from my friends and followers.
It’s also a part of the covergence between offline and online that’s largely untapped, and the popularity of apps like Foodspotting show it’s beginning to be thought about, but Foodily takes sharing food to another level, calling themselves a ‘search engine for comparing recipes’ Foodily not only presents recipes from around the web in a beautiful and clear way with a magazine-like experience, but today they launched a feature which makes creating and sharing food social.
Through integrations with Facebook, foods ‘liked’ on Foodily will appear in your Facebook feed and recipes your friend’s ‘like’ will appear in your Foodily recipe search.
With the Super Bowl coming up, Foodily allows anyone to create a Facebook event invitation that includes a menu showing friends what what dishes are planned for dinner parties and potlucks.
“Food is the most social thing we do, People want to do more than just pick a recipe off the shelf, they want to compare and share those decisions with people in real life. With so many recipe choices available online, Foodily lets people see and benefit from the decisions their friends and family have already made. Foodily brings back the joy of food by letting people discover and share recipes,” Said Andrea Cutright, CEO and Co-Founder.
The company is backed by Index Ventures and based in San Mateo, CA.
