Shelfari Releases New Facebook Application

New Shelfari Application Enables Facebook Members to Share Their Reading Lists, Discover New Books and Authors, and Participate in a Growing Community of Book Lovers

Facebook application users can view all their books on a virtual bookshelf, import books already added on, rate and review their books, and share those ratings and reviews automatically through Facebooks personal newsfeeds. They also can view the rich book information and discussions from Shelfari without leaving Facebook.

The Facebook Platform enables people to use their social network to express themselves and new applications like Shelfaris will enable Facebook members to engage with a large community of readers.

It will be interesting to view how people use this new service. We know people often love to tell others about what they like and don't be it films, books and music and Facebook certainly appeals to many of the right demographic.
