Jelly – a new social query app from twitter co-founder

Jelly for AndroidThe Twitter co-founder Biz Stone is back with a new social query platform named Jelly. The app is available on Android for now and lets you ask visual questions to your social connections and get their answers.

[quote_box_center]“Using Jelly is kinda like using a conventional search engine in that you ask it stuff and it returns answers. But, that’s where the similarities end.  Jelly changes how we find answers because it uses pictures and people in our social networks. It turns out that getting answers from people is very different from retrieving information with algorithms,” [/quote_box_center]

The blog post from the Jelly team says, the app can be used to ask anything about a photo to your existing social connections. The whole idea is pretty simple. You see a picture and don’t know about something which is shown in the picture, just tap there and ask the question. So if someone from you connections know about it, that person will reply to you. According to Biz Stone, the questions will not be shared with everybody, instead it will use an algorithm to decide which questions to forward to which of your connections. This depends on how likely they are to have an answer to your question.

Why don’t you give it a try and let us know how awesome it is? You can download the app from here: Jelly – Google Play Store
