Having been in a school environment, we spent a lot of our times searching on the Internet. Sometimes, it took us days to find answer to our questions. Meanwhile, we would always find that someone else knew the answer already. We wish that we knew him or her ahead of time, and we could focus on analyzing the answer instead of searching everywhere for it. We want to innovate the search engine technology, and make searching more effective for group works. This was how the idea of Moonjoo came about.
As we began to develop the idea, we realized that Moonjoo could be more than seeing your friend's search bookmarks. Moonjoo allows followers to follow the thought process of leaders that want to have positive impact on the society.
Moonjoo uses Yahoo! search BOSS API and stores links whenever the user’s requests it. This functionality allows people who are following you to be able to see your picture next to their search results.
