Goodreads vs Twitter: The Benefits of Asymmetric Follow

O’Reilly Radar – “I am never more painfully reminded of the limits of symmetric “friend”-based social networks than I am when I post a book review on Goodreads. I love books, and I love spreading the word about ones I enjoy (as well as ones I expected to enjoy, but didn’t quite). Most of the time, my reviews go out quietly to a small group of friends, whose book recommendations I also follow. It’s a lovely social network.”

    I know from my stats, the Goodreads book review gets the most hits on Twitter AND on FriendFeed. I also get comments from the authors too.
