Eventster is a new application that aggregates events and then further differentiates them using semantic technologies. The result is additional information to help you identify events  you want to attend, and those you don’t.

This interesting information was found on Tech Crunch in their article, “Eventster Adds Social Signals To Help You Find Events You’ll Like, Know Which To Avoid.” This new and interesting use of social media may seem more like a party search, but if you apply it to educational conferences, trade shows, and continuing education offerings, it is easier to see the benefit of this avenue of social search. It is like getting user review for events – before  you go.
