moustach.io is a New England based experiment to see how much we can learn about our software and web design by casually asking our friends, family, colleagues, and customers to checkout out our projects. Getting feedback on your site can be expensive, costing upwards of $40 per review to hire "professional" testers. While these testers provide a great service, its costly for small organizations and individual freelancers. And these premium services don't always lead to exceptional test results. Meanwhile, social networks have become ubiquitous. Recently, thanks to improved implementations of Groups and Circles, we've all grouped contacts into easy-to-target groups. And so the time is right for moustach.io, a means to amass cost-effective usability tests by putting our existing social networks to work for us. We're proud of moustach.io and hope we can help you to build a better product.
