WATSearch – The World’s First Social Search Engine Raises 3 Million in Funding!

Yes WATBlog is proud to announce the launch of WATSearch – The World’s first social search engine. Its taken us 6 months of hardwork. Also we are proud to announce that this venture is now backed by 3 Venture Capitalists who have invested 3 million dollars.

So without much delay let me showcase WATSearch! Currently hosted on search.watblog.com because we are still in BETA and WATSearch.com is unavailable!

WATSearch is a unique search engine that lets you search the social graph of any person across the web. To give you an idea here is a screenshot below:




As you can see above WATSearch tracks your existence through social media and gives you a social score as to where you stand in the social media sphere.

Would like to give credit to the team: Rajiv Dingra Founder & CEO WATSearch, Rupesh Mandal Chief Innovation Officer & Ankit Saxena Chief Technology Officer.


So what are you waiting for? Go Check Out http://search.watblog.com and let us know what you think!

    Nice one Rajiv.
    But on a serious note, this idea might get funding. There is a need for something like this which tracks and audits your social presence and the tone and nature of conversations happening about you, espcially for the corporates.

    The walled garden that social networks have is bound to break! im just not sure that a WATSearch kind of thing will be the way. One second thoughts a ‘social search’ kind of thing should also have number of connections, activity across networks, social worth (a platform for which already exists). 1st when i saw social search i thought something like wikia search! but a good one overall! even though i knew it was a fool – the search page was great!

    That was a good prank!
    But the monkey pic gave it away!!

    never forget the intelligence of the fools.
    companies first release the beta version or some version . before that they never disclose what they are doing.

  23. April 3, 2008 at 7:06 pm #

    Well its a very tough ask to rate the people where they stand socially and getting access to databases of all social networking sites….getting their permission…is another big deal……

  24. April 6, 2008 at 3:16 pm #

    I feel for it.
    This is what happens to extremely optimistic people like me, who catch up on their feeds only on weekends.
    good one !
