I have used LivingSocial since joining Facebook to keep track of books I am reading, have read and to pass this information onto my friends. The service didn’t offer any other functionality really, a standard suggested books feature but that was about all. However when recently I accessed the site to update my latest read I was surprised to be confronted with this message.
Fortunately they supplied a handy link to export all existing data to the GoodReads site, which now having signed up seems to be a far superior and greater used service. I’m often on the lookout for new ideas for books to read and this appears to be a valuable resource. It can also link in with Twitter, Facebook, WordPress and Kindle accounts, allows you to compare your bookshelf against your friends and supplies a number of widgets for inclusion in your site. So I’m afraid I will not be mourning the passing of LivingSocial. Long live GoodReads!
Dark days have arrived in Britain. The coalition government and their toxic flotilla of cuts are ruthlessly hacking away jobs, damaging vulnerable lives and chipping away at the very fabric of our society. We cannot afford to stand by and let this country sail towards a future of inequality.
Fear Not! Captain SKA and his ship have arrived to fight this coalition, but more crew members are urgently required, there is strength in numbers.
Pass this video on to other potential shipmates.
