Trusted Opinion Takes $1.3 Million Series A

trustedopinion.jpgRecommendation based social network Trusted Opinion has raised $1.3 million Series A, although the investors are not being disclosed (we did ask).

Palo Alto based Trusted Opinion offers community based product ratings and recommendations in a social networking setting. The focus is on friends recommending things to friends, such as movies and DVD’s.

The company added support for Netflix queuing in July, allowing members to port recommendations into Netflix.

Trusted Opinion has dumped the awful logo Michael noted in February, and with a some-what better new look has grown to 350,000 registered members and is adding 3,000 new members a day.

Trusted Opinion’s service overlaps with a number of other social networks and other startups including Yelp and Flixster.
