To all new Littens out there. Litsy created two new accounts to help you find accounts to follow.
Click on @TheBestofLitsy and @BestOfLitsy to get to them.

TheBestofLitsy 1/ I'll explain, shall I?

We've been struggling with sign-ups. 90-95% of new users never post. Most never follow anyone. They get Litsy, go through sign up and just BAIL!

As an experiment, we now auto-follow an account on sign-up. Following that account sub-follows about a dozen others. Thus, everyone gets something to look at when they sign up, unless the manually de-follow it.
TheBestofLitsy 2/ Why are there two accounts? Well, to try out different theories about what sort of auto-following works best, bringing new members into the site and using it. In tech terms, the two accounts are an A|B test. Half of members get A, half get B. Are these accounts really following the “best“? I dunno. What's best? But we hope at least to give new people something to follow, and pick a combination of accounts that will get them interested. 3d
TheBestofLitsy 3/ What differentiates the two accounts? I will not tell you. It recently changed, actually--which is why some of you got followed. We tried two theories out A and B, and A was better. Now we're trying C against A. 3d
TheBestofLitsy 4/ The other thing going on, though, is that we now have a technical way to follow multiple accounts through one account. That might prove useful in the future. Or, with some changes, it might be how we can effect following a book, an author or a hashtag. 3d
julesG @TheBestofLitsy Thanks for explaining! 3d
BarbaraBB @TheBestofLitsy You‘re really investing in Litsy, thank you for that! 3d

We gotta get Litsy out there, and need your help! How about… a naked bribe!

Share a post or your Litsy profile to FB, IG, Twitter, Pinterest or Tumblr before May 28, and post the URL here.

On May 28, we‘ll choose five random Littens to get mugs!

CouronneDhiver Can‘t do it... Litsy is the only social media I have. 💙😉 4d

saresmoore @TimSpalding @squirrelbrain @CouronneDhiver @julesG I think that‘s the case for a lot of us diehard Littens! BUT I promote Litsy to every reader, librarian, bookseller, and generally interesting human I meet. 👍 And I would totes just buy a mug...or a tote... 🙃 (edited) 4d

SqueakyChu I shared Litsy with those who read the Facebook page of my Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720) in Rockville, Maryland, USA. :D

flying_monkeys Love Litsy! So I'm rarely on Twitter anymore but I posted there since the only other social site I frequent is Goodreads. https://twitter.com/LeahSaylorAbney/status/1130868320352296961 (edited) 3d
JoyBlue . . . last one for me: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/48554502220118426/

When using Litsy on the web, you can now use the “j“ and “k“ keys to skip forward or backward a whole post. If scrolling drives you a little mad, this will help!

I made a video of it on Facebook https://tinyurl.com/yxsrpken

MidnightBookGirl Thanks for the tip! 7d
larah17 I didn‘t realize you could use Litsy outside of the app! That‘s very good to know, thank you 😁 7d
TheSpineView 💜💜💜💜 7d
Litsy @larah17 Great to hear. We've been talking about it a fair amount, but there's no perfect way to reach users—particularly if they follow a lot of people and don't stop in CONSTANTLY. :) 7d

On Wednesday we added the ability to tag your posts to 48,000 bookstores and libraries from the English-speaking world.

Today we've added another 45,000 from the rest of the world. The map above puts them all on a map, including 8,000 in France alone!

Can't find your favorite bookstore? Go to LibraryThing Local and add it yourself https://www.librarything.com/local . (Free LibraryThing account needed.)

TimSpalding I find this a mesmerizing image, like the map of alien conquests in Edge of Tomorrow. Quick—retreat to Savoy or Brittany, and there's safety in Basque country! (edited) 7d
kezzlou85 Cannot believe my library is on here. Its brilliant though Library Thing cant seem to find my location. 7d
Litsy @kezzlou85 Probably you need to tell it. LibraryThing doesn't guess. 7d

Peddler410 @TimSpalding Is this a website-only feature right now? 7d
TimSpalding @Peddler410 No. Search for your local bookstore or library as a book. They're all there. In the future, they'll be separated out. 7d
kezzlou85 @Litsy I did entered my location and it seemed to think I was in America. One of the suggested local libraries was in Japan. I live in England. 6d
Litsy @kezzlou85 Yeah, it's by what you search--the words you use--not by your location. Litsy doesn't track your location. (Maybe we should, be we don't.) 6d
kezzlou85 @Litsy I found my local library on Litsy but when I used the link on this thread for librarything, it couldn't find my library or any events, libraries etc anywhere near what I typed in. It just kept finding places in the US or Japan. 6d
EchoCharlie It's showing me places in Japan as well 6d
Litsy @EchoCharlie It's supposed to. It shows you whatever you search for. It's not based on your location per se. 6d

Book people love books, but they also love bookstores and libraries. So we added them to Litsy!

When you visit your favorite bookish places you can share your love, and take a selfie or a photo of your haul and tag the place, instead of a book.

The 48,000 venues were added by LibraryThing members. For now, you search for them just like books; we'll be separating them when we can. Litsy on the web adds venue photos and a “pin“ icon to every post.

C.Perone Love this!!! 1w
vivastory This is utterly brilliant!! 🙌🤘📚👏 1w
Litsy Thank you. I should mention that we shopped this idea on the Beta Group first. Reaction was mostly positive, so we moved forward. I can't wait for the app to fully integrate this, but I didn't actually want to wait for it—it's too fun to have. 1w

kyraleseberg Awesome feature, thanks so much! 1w
Litsy @BarbaraBB The initial load was Anglosphere-only (US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, NZ). I was saving non-Anglosphere for a later post. But I've gone ahead and added the Netherlands for you now. If something doesn't come up, wait 10m as the index is recomputing now. 1w
Litsy @8little_paws Yes. All the data comes from LibraryThing Local, LibraryThing's bookish-world feature. To add a store or library go to LibraryThing. If signed in, you can go directly to https://www.librarything.com/venue_edit.php . New stores are moved from LibraryThing to Litsy every night. 1w

sudi Very recently 2w
baes Okay @eri.reads and @Dragon Do I need to love fantasy to enjoy this book? I‘m not opposed to fantasy, but I‘m not familiar with the genre, and not sure if it is my thing. The closest I‘ve gotten is the Twilight series (which I‘ll admit I loved). 2w
Dragon I think it‘s a more “grownup “ version of Twilight. The author is a historian so she is very detailed. Probably closer to Outlander. 2w
baes @Dragon Oooh interesting! 2w
eri.reads @baes I don't get a Twilight vibe from it at all (although I loved the Twilight series too!). Like Dragon said the author is a historian so it's got loads of history and is more for the adult audience rather than YA. It's pretty thick, but the writing flows really well. 1w

By popular request, you can now mute hashtags you don't want to see. Tired of challenge posts? Tired of #CatsofLitsy? Mute them!

To mute tags, you have to do it on the Litsy website. What you do there will affect the app too. (We plan to include this in the app in the future, but app changes take longer to do.)

To mute tags, sign in and go to https://www.litsy.com/web/hashtags . The page is also found on Settings/Import, at the bottom.

Melissa_J Thank you!!! 2w

Soubhiville Question @Litsy : if I block a hashtag but someone tags me in a post with that hashtag, will I still get a notification? I could do without all the surveys, but if someone tags me I still like to comment to be polite. I think this is a really smart new feature! 2w

Buechersuechtling Wonderful new feature. Thank you, @Litsy. 🙇🏽‍♀️ Even if I bother a bit that I have to log-in on the web for this. I‘m only using the app so can you please make this feature available there, soon, too❓ Thank you. 2w
Soubhiville @LeahBergen and @BarbaraBB see response above. Yay! I‘m going to get on the computer today and play with this! Thanks @Litsy ! 2w
BarbaraBB @Soubhiville Thanks for tagging, this feature can come in handy! 2w
Susanita Great idea! Now instead of dismissive posts about things that don‘t appeal to you, just mute the tag. But I‘d never mute the cats! 2w
gilroyc Works great... When people use the hashtag on the post I want to mute. If they don't, not so much. 2w

Loving the fact that Litsy is on the web now as I can access it from my Kindle again as I had the app but after an update about a year ago it wouldn't work.

Birdsong28 I am using Kindle Fire 8 HD now but when it didn't work it was Kindle Fire HD 6. I am using it through the web browser option. 😘📚📖 3w
Crazeedi @Birdsong28 ok I dont have the fire (yet😉) 3w
Bookwomble Ooh, I didn't realise Litsy is on the web. Is there as by functional difference? 2w
Birdsong28 @Bookwomble Not really. You can import books from Goodreads now on there, but it's worth checking out. 📚📖 2w
Bookwomble @Birdsong28 Thanks - I just found (I mean, there was a specific post about it!) a link to the site. Maybe they'll add a few bells and whistles over time. 2w
SleepyDragon I've been trying to use it on my Kindle Fire as well, but I can't figure out how to post a pic. Have you been able to? 2w
Birdsong28 @SleepyDragon I haven't tried myself, this is a photo taken on my phone and posted through the app. 📚📖 2w
SleepyDragon @Birdsong28 Please tag me if you do post a pic from your Kindle and let me know how you do it? I feel kind of dense because I can't figure it out. Lol 2w

How cool is the website? Super excited for this! Litsy is definitely one of my favorite social media apps and I am really excited to see it grow to a website.

LiteraryinLititz I haven‘t checked it out yet but I will! Thanks for the heads up! 3w

Just a note to my #mysterymessageswap and #summersantagoespostal matches - I've just uploaded my Goodreads account on here and need to sort it out. I'll post on here when I've sorted it.

TheReadingMermaid Thank you sweetheart. I appreciate you doing that 3w

BookishClaire Oh wow! And you can import Goodreads! That is so cool. 3w
BookishClaire And you can buy!! Yayyyy 3w
TimSpalding @BookishClaire Ha. A pretty small feature. Also, not entirely unselfish—Litsy gets an affiliate kick-back. We shall we celebrating our occasional pennies mightily,let me tell you! 3w
RaimeyGallant OMG, I am freaking out!
RaimeyGallant Are there vectors of the logo kicking around so those of us who want to can link to Litsy within the social media pages section of our websites?
Litsy @RaimeyGallant Yes! I'll get out the page of logos soon. 3w
SilversReviews How do you add the link on Instagram? 3w
Litsy @SilversReviews I don't know! Anyone an Instagram-er who can explain?

If you mean posting, there's no automatic posting. But you can click the “share“ icon and download your a post's picture, for uploading.
(edited) 3w
RaimeyGallant Sweet sauce. 3w
SilversReviews @Litsy I mean add my Litsy Link to my Instagram profile...thanks. 3w
RaimeyGallant @SilversReviews Instagram doesn't allow link posting. You can share the exact web page you want to on there, but it won't show as a link. There are some exceptions, I think, for users with tonnes of followers. 3w
SilversReviews @RaimeyGallant Thanks. That‘s why I LOVE Litsy!! Love the clickable links. (edited) 3w
Litsy @RaimeyGallant Right. But the share feature has a way to download your image, with a Litsy logo on top. Click it and see. 3w
SilversReviews I put a link on my blog and will put it on Twitter too. 😊 I actually posted on Facebook and Instagram too. I said on Instagram that Litsy uses clickable links. 😊 (edited) 3w
truebookaddict I posted about it on Facebook. So thrilled you're on the web now! I just finished importing from my Goodreads. I will add a button to my blog as well. Well done, Litsy. 😍 3w
MaGoose Great! I'll start posting about it later today. 2w
overtheedge Awesome news....I have mentioned you many time to netgalley....I will add you to my Facebook and goodreads!! 2w
PurpleyPumpkin A brief note to thank you for making this wonderful community accessible on the web. Awesome!👍🏽 2w
IheartYA Love the sharing feature. 😉 2w
Aims42 Loving this!! THANK YOU!!!! 2w
IamIamIam Love this!!! I tell everyone I can about @Litsy and the amazing community here!!! Thanks for the follow, too!! Lol, I'm not sure what I do to stick out, but I'm flattered! 2w
Litsy @IamIamIam Thanks. We really need the help. We certainly have no money for advertising, and tiny social sites always struggle to get noticed! 2w

Lindy I love the web version! I‘m concerned about importing from Goodreads, however, because I‘ve got more than 3,500 books in my ‘Read‘ category. Will all of that data slow down the loading of my profile and posts on Litsy? 3w

PatriciaU OMG I LOVE this! I haven't been using Litsy as much as I'd like because the accessibility have been difficult due to a wonky phone. Thank you, Litsy! 3w

Suet624 And this is awesome too: “To respect member's privacy and keep things awesome, most of Litsy is hidden from Google. We let humans see and share pages, but not machines.“ Thank you! I am so grateful for all you do.
TimSpalding @rather_be_reading My generation would reply to that with “way!“ 3w
erzascarletbookgasm Awesome! Must check it out! 3w

Clwojick Hey Tim, I was just wondering if you could shoot me a quick email at clwojick@live.com seeing as how I dont have FB. thanks :) 2w
4thhouseontheleft @TimSpalding I've noticed that on the website interface, Litsy names with a “-“ in it do not seem to format properly when trying to use it in a reply. I thought it was just my own user error until I noticed it on someone else's post too! Just wanted to let you know! 2w
Litsy @4thhouseontheleft Thanks. Do you have an example to hand? 2w
4thhouseontheleft I can tag @nu-bibliophile in the app (what I‘m on right now), but the tag does not work properly when I try from the website. I‘ll tag you in the post where this happened, if I can find it. 2w
TimSpalding @4thhouseontheleft Got it. Good example. Thanks! 2w
nu-bibliophile I got the notification from your tagged just now. I don't know if that helps. 2w

Litsy @LibrarianRyan We'll be posting little tidbits about new web and non-web features, but here's the import page https://www.litsy.com/web/upload 3w
riversong153 Yay!!! 3w
batsy I'm using the web version now for the first time. It's great; thank you! 3w
Litsy Apologies if you were using it just now and found it slow. We are re-routing the much increased traffic! 3w
catchingbooks I've been using this for a week now and I love it!!
erzascarletbookgasm Woohoo! 👏 3w
TheSpineView I love you guys for doing this! Thank you!😍😍😍 3w
Litsy @TheSpineView Thanks! 3w
silentrequiem I love it. Thank you!!! 3w
Litsy We found another bug, that might have scotched some posts. It only appeared with high load. So, if it didn't work, it should now. 3w
TheRomantiCate 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 3w
LeahBergen Wonderful! 👏🏻👏🏻 3w
j9brown This is great! I love seeing the trending tags and trending books. Very very cool 😊 3w
Bookishlie So excited!!! More ways to procrastinate homework!!??!! 3w
cobwebmoth Thank you for this! All of the extra features are really cool. Will we eventually be able to scroll through all of our Followers/Following lists? Right now it just shows the 50 most recent people. Thanks! 3w
Litsy @cobwebmoth Yes. If you go to the bottom of your followers/following list it should load more. If it's not--check again?--it's a bug. Can you tell us your Browser/OS? 3w
cobwebmoth I'm on my HP laptop(Windows 8). I tried Chrome and the Avast browser, but both stop scrolling after 50 names. Thanks! 3w
TimSpalding @cobwebmoth All fixed. Sorry for the issue! 3w
cobwebmoth @TimSpalding Thank you so much! 3w
Melissa_J Can anyone on the web see my account (if it‘s public) even if they aren‘t on Litsy? 3w
Litsy @Melissa_J I thought I answered this. Maybe I answered on Facebook? Anyway, by default anyone can see your account, but unless you do something to make it so, it is marked as forbidden for Google to index. 3w
Melissa_J Thanks! That confirms what I suspected. It is possible you answered my question already, but I‘m not on FB so wouldn‘t have seen the answer even if you did. 3w
Samjewel Good! I will enjoy this community more often then. 3w
esurient I'm noticing on the web-version of Litsy, the green 'So-So' banner is now reading as 'Meh'? Are we transitioning to new wording? The original wording looks to still be retained in the web rate-the-book stack options and Help/FAQs section, and throughout the app-view (Android). 2w
esurient Also, the counter indicating new Activity (the red-dot with number) is showing one count in the app-view and a different count in the web-view? No biggie; just looks curious. 2w
Litsy @esurient Ah. No. I need to change “meh“ back to “so-so.“ Internally, it's stored as “meh.“ The app changes it. I guess the app builders changed their mind at the last minute. 2w
Litsy @esurient Well, if you look at one, it should affect the other. I'm not quite sure how to test this, but I think it's right, once you take that info effect. 2w
Heavenly_Human What a happy news ✨ 2w
annieftbooks Thank you for this!!! 2w
esurient @litsy Thank you, especially for the cool background information! I'll go clear my activity counter (web at: 62; app at: 10), and I suspect you're correct that going forward it should auto-adjust. 2w
Litsy @esurient Another thing to note is that, if you keep your Activity tab open on web (like I do, constantly), those unread counts won't disappear until you refresh the page. Switching back and forth between the Activities and Conversations will clear the individual unread counts on those subsets of notifications, but the unread count in the nav bar won't clear w/o a refresh. Do let us know with some specifics if you see any issues after this point? (edited) 2w
esurient @Litsy Will do! Thanks again! 2w
zembla I'm so so happy about this! Many thanks to everyone who made it happen 💖 2w

After a big push, we've reduced the number of Litsy books without covers by 74%. When our usual cover supplier, Ingram, doesn't have a cover, we are now drawing on covers from @LibraryThing and Syndetics Unbound from ProQuest. As of now, only 0.9% of books have no cover at all!

LibrarianRyan This is SOOOOOOOOOOOO Awesome!!! Thank you!!!
Caterina Yay thank you!! 3w
