UX Challenge: Design a product/service recommendation platform


#1

Preface

I often browse products on Amazon and other shopping websites which I want to buy. However, there is no easy way to ask if any of my friends have a recommendation for that product or a similar. Currently, I either have to post it on Facebook, or text/messenger it to close friends if I don’t want to make my shopping intention public. I wish there was a service that lets me do this seamlessly.

Problem

No easier product recommendation platform exists for products I want to buy off different websites.

Challenge

Design an app/extension/service that lets me ask my friends for a recommendation about the product/service I am looking for
