Bookish Social Network Socialization


When Ning relaunched with their “Create Your Own Social Network for Anything” tagline, I joked that someone should use Ning to create a social network for social networks. LibraryThing creator Tim Spalding was ahead of the game as usual and went and did exactly that: SocialCatalogers is a social network for people who make or who are for some reason profoundly interested in social cataloging sites. Social cataloging sites being “social” media sites centered around books, beer, words and other things people feel compelled to list and explore. It’s a burgeoning micro-industry and if you share the love with me, join up.
