Find an Expert in Your Network with Aardvark

AardvarkYou can add another new social networking application to your growing list with Aardvark, which helps you discover the perfect person in your network to answer any question in minutes.

According to the site, founded by former Google employees, “When you want trusted information — product recommendations, travel suggestions, local tips, or career advice — a real conversation with a friend (or friend-of-friend) can be much more helpful than searching the web.

“Aardvark is easy: just send Aardvark a question in plain English, like you do when talking to a friend. Aardvark figures out who might be able to answer, and asks on your behalf — Aardvark is the hub.” But until recently, Aardvark was a below-the-radar search service that gave its beta users just one invitation per month. Ready to emerge from is secretive shroud, however, the service is now giving users an unlimited amount of invites.

This is great news for those of you out there who thrive on useless knowledge – and subsequently want to stake your claim as the knower of all things inane. In the past few months, Aardark has been covered extensively (even if you haven’t heard of it until now) by TechCrunch, The New York Times, Wired and The Associated Press.

If you’re a Facebook user (and, really, who isn’t by now?), you can sign up quickly and easily by connecting to Aardvark via a Facebook application on the Aardvark homepage. In doing so, it will extract important pedigree info and connect you to those of your friends who are already using the search service. Once signed up, you can ask and answer questions through your favorite IM-capable applications (AIM, G-Chat, MSN and Yahoo!), connect to Twitter, and link to your e-mail.

Check it out, and let us know either way if you love or loathe Aardvark after you’ve tried it.
