OgleOgle — Ogle: to look at especially with interested attention — allows you to express your ideas through rich wall cards that take seconds to create and are easy to collect, comment upon, and share (on OgleOgle and to other social networks).
OgleOgle lets you create, collect and share everything you love. OgleOgle is a project from 7 Technologes that began as an experiment in recipe search targeted at foodies for the purpose of providing food lovers a platform. Following the lead of the community, OgleOgle has since evolved to be a service where people connect over shared interests expressed through beautiful cards which are organized into wall groups.
Walls are collections of cards you can post with content of your interest – when you see a post you like on OgleOgle, ReOgle it – to your own Wall or to a wall to which everyone on OgleOgle contributes (comming soon).
