Tuesday Thinger: Whats Up With The Buzz?

Welcome to another week of Tuesday Thingers! We always love to hear from regular participants as well as new people.

It's been a long and tiring few weeks, and I'm completely lost in my email right now (I think someone sent a suggestion, and I'm WAY behind in email, so it got temporarily lost...) So, this week I found a new-to-me page on Library Thing and thought you might not have seen it either.

This week we are looking at Buzz! That's right! Library Thing has a page to share what people are saying about Library Thing. The best part? They have areas for quotes from sites (including Wendi's Book Corner and a few others I'll bet you'll recognize), What Librarians are Saying, Prizes and Awards, Should It Be Illegal?, quotes from mainstream media, and even Tweets! So, take a peek and see what people are saying. :)

Questions: Were you aware that Library Thing had a Buzz page? Were you surprised by anything you saw or read on the Buzz page?

My Answer: I was clicking around some of the links on LT tonight in an attempt to find a new Thinger topic, and ran across the Buzz page. Until then, I had no idea they were tracking what people are saying. I think it is great, and had fun reading some of the comments.

I was very surprised to see two quotes from some of our Thingers from Wendi's Book Corner featured on the Buzz page (one is near the bottom, and the other is at the very bottom, but still there!). The first was a quote about the CueCat, and for the second one, I must thank Caite again, because it was for a topic she suggested about the Tweets on the author pages.

It was also fun to see a few other blogs I recognize listed on there. :)

Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!

This is a new one on me, but I haven't had much time for LT lately, I'm sad to say.

caite said...

I give up! how do you find that page...except from the link? where is it actually??

Sorry Caite! I guess I could have made it easier to find... :)

1. Go to the bottom of your home page
2. Click About
3. Look at the links across the top...About, Wiki, Help, Concepts, Buzz, etc
4. Click on Buzz, and you should end up there!

I never really got into Library Thing, especially since I bought Delicious Library 2.

Wendi---thanks for pointing out this fun page. Like you and Caite, I am an LT Addict, and use it all the time, every day. It's my go=to for info about books, and for chatting (even more than my blog). HOWEVER....

Like Caite, my one big gripe is that the site is not as user friendly as I think it could be. I have a really hard time finding things like "buzz" or how to do something. Hopefully, maybe someone at LT will read your post and GET IT.

Congratulations on your top of the page good news.

I'll have to check this out b/c I wasn't aware of this feature on Library Thing.

I didn't know about this buzz thing. Thanks for the heads up but I admit I haven't been to LT for quite a while. There seems to be so many similar site and I keep forgetting my passwords! My senior moments...
