(Emedia Wire) Wink provides a unique way to find new friends that share your interests online. By searching across multiple social networks, for the first time people have one place to find new friends, discover new interests and stay connected across many social networks. More than just a name search, Wink People Search also provides several ways to search for people by their interests, affiliations, general location (no addresses), musical tastes, age and occupation.
Wink is a cross between a search engine, Digg, and a general social network all rolled into one. Users can not only create profiles and locate locate friends, but also rate how relevant their search was via stars (good) or clicking the “block this” link (bad).
Wink user base has already surpassed 100 million users and it looks like they are charting a new course for Web 2.0.
