Three weeks back one of our members, Surendra wrote to us that he wanted more cool features which would allow interaction between members and at the same time also encourage people to read.
We looked back at our story so far – two months, over thousand members, more than sixty countries, thousands of files shared, and zero conversations. That’s when we realized that we had grown but had no conversations going!
Thanks Surendra for pointing this out, and our apologies for not having done it earlier. We have just released a new and improved version of BookBole with a focus on facilitating conversations, so let the conversations begin!
On BookBole the first conversation starter is of course going to be about reading. We have provided a new status message feature, where you can update the what am I reading status message, and let others discover your reading habits.
We also given an option of starting conversations around content. For example, if you are a big fan of Hamlet, you can locate it on BookBole, and start a conversation by reviewing it. BookBole members around the world who are fans of Shakespeare or students of literature can join in and have a meaningful conversation around one the classics of all time.
Conversations can be around any accessible content, imagine Dan in Canada sharing computer programming notes and articles in accessible formats, and how Kumar and a bunch of geeks around the world can comment and learn from each other. Imagine Kaan from Turkey sharing his mantra for success with everyone on BookBole, and how millions around the world can post comments and questions around the same and in the process learn and connect to each other.
To enable you to connect to each other, we have now created a profile section where you can fill in personal details about yourself, and also create a short biography which can be viewed by others.
From cooking tips and product reviews to personal stories and lifestyle tips, Bookbole is all about the small stuff, but on a really large scale. The possibilities of sharing and learning from each other are endless.
Log on to www.bookbole.com to check out the latest version of BookBole with a new design, new features, new conversations, and the same old promise <smiles>.
Remember, together, there are no barriers.
