Combine the best aspects of web 2.0 services into one massive solution.
folkd.com is a community powered social webservice that has the goal to "enrich your web-surfing experience".
The idea is to aggregate recommendations, tags (keywords), audio records, comments or just "more information" which exists within knowledge of the people (the folks!) and connect it to particular webpages or topics. You and other folkd users will use this additional information while surfing to discover the web faster and find things you'd probably have missed otherwise.
They recommend to use the folkd browser extension: The sidebar directly displays related content and interaction like the "folk it" button to push a site's reputation (rank). You can also keep track of your or your friends' folkd pages within the sidebar. To improve the search for a certain item, add a description or tags (keywords) by clicking the "save it" button.
