A recommender system is one of the major techniques, that handles information overload problem of Information Retrieval by suggesting users with appropriate and relevant items. This paper surveys recommendation technology, the challenges and its solutions. Recommendation technology is applied in many areas like movies, videos, books, research papers, libraries, music, news, tourism, etc. This survey is useful for the further implementation and analysis of how users are adapting these technologies and how helpful it is for the user.
