Spezify, a big-picture visual seach

I recently discovered the visual search engine, Spezify.  And I think many of my students will enjoy its attractive display and unique features, especially at the beginning of the search process.

Officially launched on June 15th, Spezify attempts to present a big picture view with a display that seems to continually fills with screenshots gathered from blogs, videos, search engines, ebooks, videos, tweets, and images.

Users can filter their searches by showing and hiding particular media formats. Searches may be refined by selecting suggested keywords that generate across a top menu bar.  Searchers can also identify and save favorites, select search sources from among the major players, choose a safe search option, and they may save and link to their searches.

More visual learners will enjoy this attractive change of pace and Spezify also presents a quick strategy for a digital footprint check.
