This week we are exploring something totally different and un-Library Thing - we're looking at Glue! I first heard about Get Glue when a bloggy friend won a Kindle 2 from one of their contests! The topic then came up again at the recent Seattle blogger get-together. SO. . . I decided that maybe this whole Glue thing deserved a little attention.
What is Get Glue?
From their Website:SO . . . on top of helping you find great books, movies, etc, you can also follow Get Glue on Twitter and play their games to win great weekly prizes. :) If you read some of their recent posts, you will probably find some familiar names winning some of those prizes!
Developed by AdaptiveBlue, Glue enables you to connect with your friends on the web around the things you visit online. Glue is powered by semantic recognition technology that automatically identifies books, music, movies, wines, stocks, movie stars, recording artists, and more. Glue works hard to make it easy for you to find out what your friends think about things you're visiting online.
Questions: Have you gotten Glue yet? If so, how do you like it? Do you follow Glue Genie on Twitter? Won anything in their quizzes?
My Answer: I am BRAND NEW to Glue, and am in the process of downloading the toolbar as I type (no, it doesn't take long, I just had to pause the installation to finish this post). At first I thought Get Glue would just be another thing to add to my ever growing to-do list, but I've been hearing great things about it and have to try it out now. So - I haven't gotten it quite yet, I'm in the process. I expect to like it though!
I do follow Glue Genie on Twitter, as I want to start doing some of those weekly quizzes!
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
