Community & Connect
You can shop together with your friends on ShopYourWay using the chat window on the bottom right of the screen. This means you and your friends are browsing the same pages on ShopYourWay at the same time. It's just like being in the shopping mall together, without leaving your home!
When your friend starts sharing his/her browsing with you – click “Watch” and ShopYourWay will automatically take you to the same page your friend is currently browsing.
This can work the other way around as well. Click “start sharing browsing” and if your friends want, they can start “watching” you and be taken to whatever page on ShopYourWay you're browsing.
Privacy: the sharing setting applies only to the current chat window. Other users who are not part of this chat will not be able to see what you browsed.
In any case, the existing privacy settings you applied to your catalogs and profile also apply. Users in this chat window will not be able to see any catalog that you marked “private” or to see your private profile information even if you're sharing your browsing with them.

What are "Interests"?
ShopYourWay can automatically infer your interests based on your public activity on ShopYourWay (only an activity that is visible to everyone), which includes actions like commenting, reviewing, recommending, and voting on items from a specific ShopYourWay category.
Once ShopYourWay thinks that you have performed enough actions to infer that you are interested in a specific category, it will add that category to your “Interests” list.
