Walmart Debuts Shopycat Social App
Walmart this week launched its first-ever social networking application, called Shopycat. The app is a holiday gift finder that recommends gifts based on users' Facebook data.
The app was developed by Walmart Labs.
"As human beings, we are inherently social and shopping is one of the most social activities we engage in. Our vision is to delight consumers and Shopycat is a first step in that direction with social and shopping coming together on the scale of Walmart," Venky Harinarayan, senior vice president of Walmart Global eCommerce and co-founder of @WalmartLabs, said as part of the announcement.
