MyStrands social recommender service secures US$25 million in funding

In my personal experience, the internet seems to be evolving into a tool that is actually connecting people more than isolating them. I know in the last couple of years that I have met and corresponded with more people than I would have in my limited "real-life" sphere of living. Software and services that connect people are also developing and revolutionizing the way we interact with each other. I am a user of social networking services like Jaiku and Twitter and have been keeping my eye out for others, especially those that can be used from mobile devices. Rudy sent me a press release last week regarding major funding for an interesting social recommendation service called MyStrands that was actually founded in 2003.
