Today’s question, courtesy of Marie: Members who have your books. Do you ever look at this feature? Do you use it to make LT friends, or compare notes? There are three tabs- weighted, raw, and recent. “Weighted,” which means “weighted by book obscurity and library size” is probably the least self-explanatory of the three, whereas “raw” and “recent” are more so. Do you get any kind of use out of this feature?
I’ve looked at this, but don’t find it particularly useful. Using raw, the person I share the most books with (321 books) has 4147 books in her library. We really don’t have that many in common… After that I share 235 with a user that lists 72008 (which is actually a library not a user). Clearly any library that big is going to have something in common with me. After that are a bunch of users with large collections- so again I still don’t really feel like it’s very useful. I also don’t think that the ‘recent’ tab is very interesting or useful… I don’t recognize any of the users. Maybe if ‘recent’ really meant we were adding them at the same time, I’d get more out of it.
Now the weighted is more interesting. I have a bunch in common with Devourer of Books and thekoolaidmom. Probably ARCs are what’s connecting us there. And there’s also a person who I’ve added as an interesting library because they have a lot of Alexander the Great books- and it’s cool to see what they have and I don’t.
So the weighted is probably my favorite and the one I check the most! Which is your favorite?
