Invite More Friends, Earn More Credits, Buy and Read More Books, and Share
With Friends on Facebook
DALLAS -- March 13, 2013
BookShout! today announced an update to its Facebook integration which
includes it in the new Timeline app sections, providing a new way to share the
books you love with friends. BookShout! is among the first apps you can now
add to sections on your profile, enabling people to promote the books they’re
reading, engage in conversations and earn credits toward future book
Available on iOS, Android and the web, BookShout! enables readers to share and
personalize the digital reading experience in unique and creative ways. When
users join BookShout!, they can share their favorite books, passages and
thoughts to Facebook, enabling friends to discover new titles and enjoy rich
collaborative reading experiences.
Social loyalty is rewarded as well. The more friends you invite who join you
on BookShout!, the more dollars you’ll earn to spend in the store. Readers can
then search books by categories, see what other friends are reading, sort by
most popular and new releases, interact with authors, join or start new
reading circles, or add favorite books to their Facebook Book section.
BookShout!’s integration with Facebook is a win for everyone involved. Authors
and publishers can better understand their audiences, and readers can leverage
“word of mouth” to discover new books and stay connected to one another.
“Facebook took an important step for book lovers today, allowing friends to
explore new literary content,” said Jason Illian, CEO of BookShout!. “The most
exciting part is, this is just the beginning. In the coming months, BookShout!
will deploy additional tools and integrations to make social discovery and
sharing of books even easier.”
