Before, when you search or click a hashtag, Litsy showed posts tagged with that hashtag

Now, for some hashtags, like #cozies, #paranormal or #AmericanHistory you also get posts on books that ARE that tag—paranormal books, horror books, American history books.

• This is a GREAT way to find people who read the genres you love!
• Tags are drawn from LibraryThing's 140m user-added tags.
• No posts are removed; most Litsy hashtags are unaffected.

umbrellagirl Thank you! 2mo
TimSpalding There are a lot of wrinkles here, if anyone is interested. For my part, this has made Litsy much more useful, because I can search for genres and topics I care about. Absent this, I was lost trying to find my tribe on Litsy. Now I can search for hashtags like #AncientHistory #GreekHistory #Archaeology #EarlyChurch #Turkish and find lots of posts about books I care about, and the people who write them. (edited) 2mo

saresmoore Super cool! 2mo
JennyM Awesome! Thanks guys 2mo
speljamr I like this and will be exploring this more. 2mo
Crazeedi Great!! 2mo
gilroyc I'd rather the two searches be separate. Genre isn't the same as hashtags. 2mo
TimSpalding 1/So, we had a choice. A new feature along those lines would take a lot of work and therefore cost a lot of money. And where would it go? Or perhaps we could tell people to use ## instead of #. Or we could have a setting that turned it off and on. But Litsy is an aggressively simple application, and I think it's worth keeping it such. To reverse it, when you search for #horror, do you really only want posts tagged that way? (edited) 2mo
TimSpalding 2/ I think most of the time you're interested in horror generally, and if it surfaces posts about horror books—some tagged horror by the posters and some not—that's good. 2mo
TimSpalding 3/ I'm interested to hear cases where it falls down, if any. We might also add a line at the end of posts like: This book was tagged #horror by other users so you know why. Or even list a few such tags. And, yes, we can add a setting to turn it off. But I need to see significant examples where it's worse before we add complexity. 2mo
rretzler Hmmm. Now I just need to try to figure out what hashtags are applicable to the books I like since I don‘t use any particular hashtags on LT 2mo

TimSpalding @Madison91 Your point of reference on grid views is Instagram here, right? 2mo
Madison91 @TimSpalding yes! Saves me time on scrolling 😅 2mo
Stephjotsdown Hi, I just discovered Litsy and i am loving it. But when I was updating my books, i find that quite a number of titles cannot be found in Litsy. How can I alert Litsy to add these books?
