Kickstarter has rolled out a new advanced search feature that stands to make it much easier to find projects on the platform. This revelation was shared in a recent blog post from Kickstarter’s Michael McGregor.
Today we’re excited to make a major change in the way people discover projects on Kickstarter. We’ve long wanted (and you’ve long requested) the ability to search for projects in a more precise way. With our new Advanced Search, you can dig deep using a whole batch of filters — location, category, launch date, popularity, and tags. You can then sort those results however you want, including by “magic,” which shows you what’s bubbling up right now across categories and subcategories.
There is also an interesting social tool built into this feature. Those connected to Facebook can see what projects their friends are backing.
In using it for a few minutes, I’m hugely impressed. It is such a vast improvement over the old way of discovering projects on Kickstarter. I’m seriously impressed.
Now, allow me to delude myself into thinking I had something to do with it!
