Google Schemer launched today is a new activity recommendations portal that allows people to ‘discover new things to do.’ Schemer currently in an invite-only beta is built around Google+ helps people discover and share things to do in the offline world. Activities, or schemes, are recommended to you based on your location and interests.
To make it easier to find a scheme, you can add tags and locations.
Since, Shemer is integrated with Google+, you first need to join Google+ to be able to use it.
“Schemer uses your profile picture and name from your Google+ account to identify you as a schemer user. This means that when you post a scheme, write a comment, post a reply, or indicate either you want to do or have done a scheme, your profile picture and name will be attached to those activities.”
“A scheme is any activity that can be done in the world, whether it’s ordering a favorite dish at a restaurant or snorkeling in the Caribbean with sharks,” explains Google.
Google notes “Whether it’s exploring a new city, checking out a friend’s movie recommendations, or just finding new activities for your weekends, Schemer lets you discover new things to do, share schemes with friends, and make the most of your day.”
With Schemer, you can also find stuff to do, save ‘schemes for later’ and let friends know you are interested in specific schemes.
Schemer also let you keep track of what you want to do, record all your schemes in your list of accomplishments and other schemers will be able to learn from your experiences.
Over time, Schemer will recommend new schemes tailored to your interests and help you do the things you want to do.
