I am clueless on social media. I use LibraryThing for books, Ravelry for knitting and for music. That plus my blog takes up as much time as I can spare! I hadn’t noticed your Virtual Bookshelf but now you have pointed me there, yes I very much like it.

I signed on to Facebook last fall, at the encouragement of my hairdresser. Like you, I was a bit obsessed with it at first. Long lost friends, boyfriends, etc. were popping up on a daily basis from all over the world. Very cool. I am still on it, but I’m not as nutty about it as I used to be. Despite some pressure, I have refused to join Twitter. I’ve heard it is like Facebook on speed, and that didn’t sound so good.

I used to use Orkut a lot. That is more popular than facebook in India. I was excited at the start but then after sometime when you have re-established ties with all your old friends i didn’t see any use for it except taking up unwanted time. I have a facebook account too but rarely log in to it. I had never tried the visual bookshelf widget but I do use Shelfari and goodreads a lot. It helps me keep track of my books 🙂

I don’t use Facebook, it would be too hard to separate my online self from my professional self there.

Frankly, I haven’t really paid that much attention to your visual book shelf, but I do look at currently reading and TBR.

Beth – I love the way you’re so mysterious! I like to think you’re a really famous person, or one of my favourite authors! Don’t spoil my dream!

Violet – I’ve never heard of Orkut before, but then there are lots of things I haven’t heard of!

I’ve had a look at shelfari and goodreads, but don’t think I have enough time for them at the moment.

I read your visual bookshelf occasionally. What I really like is your visual shelf header. Even though I may have just looked at it yesterday I will look again today. It just fascinates me!

I’m completely ignorant when it comes to Facebook. Based on your experience, I’m going to stay that way. I don’t need one more obsession.

I LOVE facebook. I use it every day. I grew up all over the world so there is no chance that I could ever be in touch with classmates and friends from all my schools without facebook. I update my status regularly and check changes in status for friends regularly too. I used to be obssessed with it, but have calmed down now and only use it for keeping in touch.

Hi Jackie,

I am a product manager at LivingSocial, and wanted to let you know we also have a more visual widget available. You’ll need to go to our external site (, but it gives you several more options.

If any of you have suggestions on how we can improve, feel free to drop us a line at
