Wibki is an easy way to browse and discover the Web with your friend.
Wibki’s essence is its cloud based visual bookmarking tool. Instead of endless bookmark lists offered on current browsers, Wibki offers a beautiful homepage that contains the logos of the sites users save, thus enabling them a faster and more intuitive approach to browsing. Wibki will become your content hub for the Web.
The major benefit of using Wibki is the ability to access your services on any device from any location (laptops, smartphones, tablets, connected TVs). Wibki’s platform enables us to collect extensive data regarding users’ browsing habits which will be used in two ways: 1. we plan to make Wibki a social network that adapts according to how you spend your time online, taking web discovery to a whole new level. 2. We will develop and implement an innovative ad-network that suggests sponsored listings based on actual web usage–not according to your searches or likes. This will change the online advertising ecosystem as we know it today.
