Have a gander at these here numbers: I now have 1,020 Goodreads friends!
How did I manage this, you ask? Well, about a week ago, I had 200 friends, as a result of a year of giveaways (total of 8, which are also responsible for the staggering 2,424 of my books on people’s to-read shelves) and also because of two months of madness advertising #ComedyBookWeek. Then I discovered something most of you probably already know.
Goodreads lets you connect to your friends on other social platforms en masse.
So, if you already knew that, then why didn’t you tell me? For those that didn’t, here’s how you can connect to thousands of your Twitter or Facebook friends with a few clicks (assuming you have thousands of Twitter or Facebook friends):
- On Goodreads, hover over your picture in the top-right corner. When a menu appears, click on “Friends.”
- Find this in the top-right corner of “Friends” page:
- Click on each platform’s icon and send out invites by clicking on “Add Friends” button.
That’s it. Now they all will see your general updates, comments you’ve made in groups, and you can invite them to your groups or events. Like, I dunno, you can invite them to #ComedyBookWeek group. Just sayin’.
