Wajam is a social search engine that gives you access to the knowledge of your friends. You can find results from your friends by searching directly at http://www.wajam.com or by installing the social search extension for your browser. When you search, you get a personalized social layer of your friends’ comments, likes and recommendations for products, places, videos, links and photos.
The browser extension lets you bring social search with you everywhere you browse the web. Search in places like Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor, YouTube and Ebay, and get recommendations from your friends without having to change your search behavior.

Yes! Wajam never shares your browsing history or search history.
First, we are sorry for any confusion about how Wajam got installed on your computer.
Because Wajam is TRUSTe certified, our product is not allowed to be installed unless you have given consent to do so. Wajam is never secretly added or forced upon the user, however, we have received some complaints when users were unaware of clicking the consent button. We have created easy steps to help you with the removal of the Wajam browser plug-in. Wajam is sometimes bundled with other downloadable software.
Oftentimes, if you download the latest version of a browser, a screensaver, or a game, Wajam may be offered as part of the app to download. In every case, you have the opportunity to opt-out of the download. Once again, we apologize if you have unintentionally consented to downloading our social search technology. We hope you may reconsider giving it a test drive at another time.
You can use Wajam with Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer.
You can search in Amazon, Ask, Best Buy, Bing, Buy Cheapr, Ebay, Google, IMDb, MyWebSearch, Overstock.com, Search-Results.com, Shopping.com, Tripadvisor, Walmart, Wikipedia, Yahoo!, Yelp and Youtube.
Log in to Wajam with your Facebook or Twitter accounts. Once you’ve logged in, you can add Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Google+ as friend sources.
When you do a search in Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Amazon, Yelp, Trip Advisor, YouTube or Ebay, you'll find your most relevant Wajam result at the top of your search results. You’ll also see information about who shared the item, any comments made about it and other friends that also shared that piece of content.
Above your top Wajam result, you'll find a breakdown of friends who have shared the most content related to your search. If you've saved or shared any results that are related to your search term, you'll be listed first, so it's easy to find your content again.
If you just signed up, be patient! Wajam needs some time to finish indexing all of your content, so you may not be getting complete results at first. You also may not always have Wajam results for your search term. To increase your chances of finding Wajam search results, try using a more general search term, or try adding more sources for Wajam to index. Wajam may suggest Twitter users to follow to find additional social search results.
Wajam Social Search results only show in the United States at the moment. We're hoping to expand to other countries in the future. Thank you for your patience!
