Sundew is a question and answer application that lets you query your social network friends in real-time. Similar to Google’s now defunct Aardvark or LinkedIn answers, the community votes up those who build their community karma through well-written answers.
Best Feature: Let’s face it, no one is an expert in everything. By offering users a chance to ask questions from specific friends rather than forcing them to ping everyone, the application can prove itself useful for localized restaurant and travel recommendations.
Needs Work: Google announced closure of Aardvark in September and Facebook Questions relaunched as a polling application after poor traction as a straight up Q&A application. If two of the largest social web companies can’t make this work, it’s a tough road ahead for Sundew. Targeted Q&A communities like LinkedIn’s service indicate to users that questions should be career-related. It looks like this community has a large number of food-related questions. Perhaps launching a food-specific service would offer direction to new users and higher relevancy to those seeking answers.
