Good news for those who like BookLikes and Goodreads and want to stay active on both. Now you can synchronize your Goodreads profile with your BookLikes webpage. Just connect your GR account in Booklikes Settings/Import and fill up your both bookshelves at one go from your BookLikes webpage.
To synchronize your Goodreads account with your BookLikes webpage, follow these two steps:
1. Go to Settings/Import and connect your Goodreads account.
2. Enjoy shelving and reviewing books on BookLikes and have them published on both sites.
BookLikes -> Goodreads synchronization includes:
Once you do one of those things on BookLikes, they will be published on your both sites: here on your BookLikes webpage and on your Goodreads profile. Please note that during this process we're dependent on Goodreads technology and some synchronization delays concerning adding books on your Goodreads shelf and posting a review may occur.
Please remember that BookLikes -> Goodreads book match is possible thanks to ISBN. If the book lacks the number or is unavailable on Goodreads with the given ISBN, it may not appear on your Goodreads bookshelves.
The synchronization will be active from the moment you connect your GR account on BookLikes. If you would like to fill up your BookLikes profile with your past book entries from Goodreads, you can do that by importing your csv file from Goodreads with your book collection, bookshelves, reviews and ratings in Settings/Import. If you have any questions, check our FAQ site or write to us.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. This is actually a positive thing, if it's happening to everyone. One of the things that usually make people give up on a new networking site is the lack of people to interact while their friends don't sign-up. I'm just puzzled because so far I've only been light testing this place, haven't fully used it yet. Perhaps you're my friends and I'm just not recognizing the names (some I did, though). If so, sorry about that. But really. Why? O.o
Just realized I'm not going to get replies to this because I haven't setup a Diqus acc. for this yet. Oops! Anyway, my twitter is @eloisavaldes, feel free to poke me there while I keep procrastinating on making a new email to use with Disqus for this. :B
EDIT 2: Ok, you can now comment, DIsqus setup done. Btw, my shelves are wonky. A lot of things unshelved and on my currently-reading list appears a book I never even heard of. If you're part of the BookLikes team don't worry. 1. I know what beta means. 2. I'm compiling my thoughts to send all the feedback by email.
It sure is my comfy zone. However, I'm not reblogging because of that, and even less because someone said so. Nope. This is a feature functionality test. :B
