Hunch Tweaks Home Page, Focuses On Recommendations
When the site launched last year, we referred to Hunch as a “personal decision maker;” Hunch itself used the term “decision engine.” The new home page, though, presents a change of emphasis; logged-in users are immediately presented with a group of recommendations.
The previous home page was more of an activity stream that seemed geared toward funneling users into existing decision topics. The difference between decision-making and recommending is admittedly slight, but it’s a change nonetheless. Recommendations on Hunch were previously something that users typically accessed only after going through a decision-making, question-and-answer process.
On a fact sheet updated in May, Hunch said it has more than 6,000 topics and 75,000+ possible recommendation outcomes. From that collective knowledge, Hunch has been publishing some interesting reports on its blog, like this one about summer vacation preferences, and a more recent report on food preferences.
