Get Book Recommendations Using Yasiv’s Amazon Products Visualization Tool

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

yasivtoolYasiv, a visual recommendation service, has created a tool that lets you find recommendations for books, movies and video games, based on what you already like. Users can enter a book they like, say The Hunger Games, and the tool will reveal every version of the book or movie that is available on Amazon, as well as other related items such as The Hobbit, Divergent and Fundamentals of English Grammar.
The tool bases its connections on past purchases on Amazon. Check it out: “We often decide what to buy based on what others are buying, and that’s no bad thing, after all. If something is bought by many of our friends there has to be a reason. Maybe it’s a good product and worth the money? This is where Yasiv steps in; it shows you what people are buying along with other products. A link between the two products means that they are often bought together. By simply observing the network of products one can guess at what is popular and what isn’t.”
