Today is a special day for Active Garage.

What makes this day so special is that today, we are unveiling our flagship project that we have been tinkering on “Actively” in our “Garage”.

Active Garage is proud to announce the launch of its new project, 99TribesA People discovery engine for Twitter.

There is no dearth of people directories on Twitter. So, why another one?

99Tribes helps you find and DISCOVER twitter users who share their interests. Based on the patented Rawsugar technology, you can start discovering people by typing what you are interested in (popular examples being: marketing, sales, blogging etc.)

Like any directory, 99Tribes will show the search results. What happens next shows the power of discovery.

On the left column, you will notice a set of tags. These tags show the “other” interests of people displayed in the search results.

For example, marketing may be your interest and you search on Marketing. Looking at the tags on the left you may notice that a set of people interested in marketing are interested in music too. You click on music and now the search results are updated to reflect people who are interested in Marketing and Music. It does not stop there. The tags get updated and you may notice that there are number of people who are interested in Music and Marketing are also interested in Fashion and Art. Or Camping or Hiking.

In other words, you can drill down to multiple levels and keep discovering wonderful people along the way!

We invite you to check it out, add yourself to 99Tribes and have fun discovering others with like interests!

Wish you the very best,

Active Garage team.
