From the official website: "Shopcade is a social shopping application on Facebook that connects people to shop and recommend products together and get rewarded for it.
You can shop trending products recommended by your friends and people you trust, as well as become a trendsetter by recommending products you love. Whenever you buy via others Shopcades, or others buy via yours, you both get rewarded."
From the review on Search Engine Watch: "...Think of Shopcade as the gender-neutral, retail version of Pinterest. Users can quickly and easily create themed boards to showcase their favorite products from a variety of e-retailers.

Users can also follow specific product categories, brands, and other users to totally personalize their Shopcade feed.
