The service is designed to let TestFreaks users help each other to find new products, rate news, find credible rumors and create 'how to' guides.
Wiral Internet said ti has secured $2.8m investment from Northzone Ventures to push launch. This summer TestFreaks will launch a beta version in six markets and will expand to another 14 markets before the end of this year.
The TestFreaks team is inviting everyone to take part and contribute in the development process as co-developers in the TestFreaks forum. Highly contributing users will be invited as beta testers to the development servers to test out new features and functionality.
Kristofer Arwin, CEO & Founder of TestFreaks, said: "Our focus with TestFreaks is on finding the best product and you will see that we have put in many hours of thinking in order to create an architecture of participation. You can expect to see a rich user interface, a lot of wiki functionality, powerful recommendation engines, social and community driven elements.”
