The Rec.fm Mission
rec.fm's mission is to allow folks to easily create, find and share trustworthy and concise personal recommendations ("recs") such that quality products and services can be found and purchased with more confidence and less research.
Our mission is founded by a desire to help great causes and to become an agent of their success. Our partnership with those causes defines the core credibility of our service offering. $ 150 billion is spent online by social network users, it is our intention to help turn that spend into a powerful force for creating change.

Intellectual property includes three provisional patents, a substantial domain name portfolio and a flexible, cloud-based service delivery platform.
