Social Search Communities

We have completed the testing if there latest modules and are ready to move forward with additional improvement. Zabang is spreading it's social capability now.

We have an initial beta test team created this week consisting of specialists in social media design. We have gone over the latest modules in the social network part of the search engine and are improving and adding onto the design. Once we decide which modules to work on first, we will update it.

Basically, it is grown to a point where people can find a community of others that share their own particular viewpoint and see what their search results are for any particular Keyword phrase.

Now that we have set up the main infrastructure to create these social groups working the members of the search engine network, we are working on how the members within a community can chat and message each other, and also invite others to Jon their particular community by joining Zabang. This is the viral growth aspect we have gotten implemented. With this component, Zabang will really grow.

Upcoming Beta Testing

We are still in testing phase for the new modules we have integrated previously.

We expect to start beta testing soon with a few select Zabang users. We are working on a questionnaire so we can seed the AI machine learning engine with how users choose a particular search result from a particular Keyword Search phrase.

Social Media Modules and KSGs

We have made significant progress with the new social media modules. We did testing in the beginning of last week and started new code this week. Here are the updates for last week and this week.

1. We made the users' keyword search groupings (KSG) be ordered alphabetically.

2. For each KSG, we made the rating functionality work. We also made the user voting contribute to the cumulative score.

3. We also finished the functionality where all users can vote the Search Results inside the KSG by clicking on Up or Down arrows next to each search result.

4. We finished the functionality which makes 10 search results display inside KSG by default. We added a "Show more" button which makes the rest of the search results above 10 open up.

We will be testing these modules next.

Testing Social Media Modules

We have completed the latest rewrite on the social media modules within each search result and are testing it this week. These modules are very unique - not found in any search engine. We have been refining the modules in accordance to the latest social media trends, so we are using a group of millennials who are testing the functionality.

Load Testing Relevancy Feature

Last week and this week, we have been load testing the new functionality that allows the user to rate how relevant the search results are for a given Keyword Search Group. There were several issues we needed to address and will continue to address. In addition, we are designing database structure updates that will allow us to build functionality where users can re-arrange search results within a given Keyword Search Group.

Keyword Search Groups (KSGs) Live

Last week, we made the keyword search groups live on Zabang.

In a few words, users can create their keyword search groups and then can add search results to specific keyword search groups.

After that, other users can search for keywords in specific keyword search groups as well.

We are going to be doing load testing on these new functionalities these next two weeks.

We will review everything again this week and fix any other bugs that come up.
