Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Bookgoo, a Seattle based social media startup, announced today the release of its document sharing website - http://www.bookgoo.com.
Bookgoo has developed a technology that allows users to engage in community interactions with documents - both online and offline. Bookgoo allows users to highlight and annotate their documents in the same way they use a highlighter and pen on hard copy documents. Using the technology, users can ask a question, make a comment, scribble on the document, refer to a reference, search for other user annotations, and toggle between user notes - all within the context of the digital document.
"The social networking community demands a more streamlined and interactive online document experience. Bookgoo empowers the user to collaborate more effectively and efficiently with documents to enhance in-document community interactions," says CEO, Ron Girard.
Social media enthusiasts, students, and bloggers like the simplicity of Bookgoo, its ease of use, and it's cross platform capabilities. "I like the fact that you can highlight any web or office doc," said one blogger. You can find and upload a document from anywhere, whether it's a pdf, doc, xls, even a URL. And you don't need to install any software."
Although many applications of the technology are currently being envisioned, it is certain to resonate with the academic community. Students, professors and researchers will appreciate the ability to engage in richer document collaborations. As well, it is anticipated that the technology will likely become the next generation blogging tool as it helps to eliminate the challenges associated with in-context document discussions.
The site is now available in public beta. For more information, visit http://www.bookgoo.com.
