Like.com -First True Visual Image Search

Riya — a Photo search and a facial recognition site is launching —a new “image search engine called Like.com.” — Like.com is the first true visual search engine, where the contents of photos are used to search and retrieve similar items.

Like.com utilizes “Likeness Technology™” to create a digital signature that describes the photo’s contents and enables a more accurate search for similar looking items and products.
Our initial launch focuses on handbags, jewelry, shoes, and watches – allowing users to search and purchase items from thousands of leading and boutique brands. We will very quickly add clothing and a number of other aesthetically oriented product categories.

Key features of Like.com include:

  • Likeness Search™ – the ability to search by image instead of text;
  • Like Detail™ – finds items that have a specific feature you like (such as a buckle, straps, bezel, etc);
  • Like Color™ – find color variants of the item you desire;
  • Like Celebrity™ – find clothing, shoes and accessories similar to those worn by your favorite celebrities;
  • Like Upload™ – the ability to upload your own photo of your favorite item and find the same or similar products, coming soon.
  • To learn more about Like.com and the great ways to use the product make sure to visit our blog . Happy shopping!
