Santa Barbara, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 09, 2011
BookRix, an online community connecting more than 150,000 writers, readers and authors, launched a beta phase for their new social media application, SocialBook©, an online feature that allows writers anywhere in the world to collaboratively participate in building an online written e-book from either their Facebook, Twitter or BookRix profiles, simply with connecting their accounts and including a specified #hashtag. The free-to-use SocialBook© application sets a new standard in collaborative writing and offers limitless opportunities and uses for online content, in a format that can be saved, stored, shared and even embedded like a YouTube video, with real-time updates and no limit on the number of co-authors.
The BookRix SocialBook© app now gives Facebook, Twitter and BookRix users an easy way to collect posts, tweets, stories, conversations and ideas that once posted, got left behind in digital dust. Writing on the internet has never been this social before, let alone from the same social media platforms where millions of online users already write millions of posts everyday, only to forget about them unless otherwise manually copied and pasted from browser to text document.
Users can not only design and create a SocialBook© for content they’d like to have archived and organized in an automatic, free social e-book in a function similar to microblogging, but they can invite co-authors to participate as well from their Facebook friend and Twitter follower lists.
ViewRix, the unique online viewing software created by BookRix, allows readers to comfortably read SocialBooks© or any title on BookRix, plus have immediate built-in sharing and usability tools to comment, forward or rate the title.
The act of social or collaborative writing, story building or collaborative fiction writing is now truly an option with the SocialBook©. By using any specified #hashtag, all participating #hashtag posts, tweets or comments by invited online users will be fed directly into any custom SocialBook©, with automatic updates of content every 15 minutes.
There are endless topics where the SocialBook© might be the perfect application to save and share collaborative writing efforts including Group Writing, News and Events, Weekly #hashtag Chats, Daily Tips, Favorite Quotes, Haiku Poems and much more.
SocialBook© authors may control who can participate, how their SocialBook© is seen, whether it’s only readable online or as an e-book download, and whether it can be embedded or not. BookRix users owning an iPad, smartphone or a similar mobile eReading device also have the ability to download SocialBooks© from the BookRix mobile site.
