[goodrelations] Exposing information about which products you own at Web Scale

Dear all:

Many shopping sites provide recommendations based on your past  
purchases. For example, Amazon suggest books related to books or book  
topics from previous purchases.
The main problem of such recommendations is that they are limited to  
what you previously bought in that particular store. If you buy stuff  
from multiple sites, the current site cannot take into account what  
you bought from the other ones, which limits the quality of the  

Since long, GoodRelations has provided a simple yet extremely powerful  
mechanism for making information about what you previously bought or  
own to multiple shopping sites.

So you can expose data about ALL products that you own to ALL shopping  
sites that you want to be aware of those for recommendations. That is  
exactly the cross-site product ownership info that services like e.g. http://shwowp.com 
  are providing, but with GoodRelations, you can do that at Web scale.

Here is a recipe of how it works in GoodRelations:
