As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Twitter. I love it’s ability to connect you with authors, brands, even celebrities. But you know, as well as I do, that if you miss a conversation, you’re likely never hear about it again. Unless it has a hashtag that you regularly follow or it involves Rob Ford, your apt to miss out on a tweet from your friends about their most recent read. That’s why I’m such a fan of a new website called BookVibe. Essentially, BookVibe does all the heavy lifting for you when it comes to finding out what books your Twitter friends are reading in an easy to use and visual way.
As their website indicates,
BookVibe analyzes the books your friends are talking about on Twitter and Facebook (coming soon) to help you discover new books.
Their formula for consolidating all your followers book chatter in one place not only makes it easier to get excited about new books, but it allows you to connect with your followers hours after their original tweet was created.
Another component that has me really excited is that once logged in, you can click on EXPLORE andperuse through a variety of categories; such as, technology leaders, top authors and leaders in publishing. On this page, you’re able to click on an admired individual and see what their followers are reading too! The fact that you’re not limited to your followers was a huge plus for me, because it’s an added bonus that there is room to create new connections and hear about new books that I might be interested in reading.
Make it part of your routine to login to BookVibe to find out what your friends are saying about new and old pieces of literature and be sure to connect with BookVibe online by giving them a follow on Twitter: @BookVibe
