NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just like your best friend, the Internet can know everything about you.

Hunch.com, however, will use that knowledge to make life easier.

The website “personalizes the Internet” for users, according to spokesman Kelly Ford, by asking a series of questions that determines personality and taste, and by accessing details from Facebook.

Says Ford: “By getting to know you like a good friend, Hunch can use the information to make recommendations on anything, like which camera to buy, where to go on vacation, or which book you should read.”

Through the questionnaire, Hunch can come up with a very detailed account of a person and give them tips on products, movies, shows, and other things they might like.

For instance, Hunch believes a person who swats flies instead of shooing them out a door is more likely to be conservative, read USAToday, and like Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
