Mike has revamped LibraryThing’s “connections” feature, changing the UI somewhat and allowing members to specify new types of contacts, like “best friends,” “employees,” “librarian peeps,” etc. These categories show up everywhere connections do, such as work pages.
There were also significant changes under the surface, preparing us for better contact handling generally—both inside-LibraryThing contacts and reaching out to other social networks.
We’ve also added an area for “Groups you share.”
Members are divided over this addition. There’s a poll being held about it right now.
There were a host of smaller changes. Read more about it on Talk.
