Google+ Introduces eBook Sharing Feature

Google has managed to add another feather to its cap, as the company now allows users on its Google+ social networking website to share the books they are reading with people in their Circles.

According to tech website, Paid Content, Google Inc’s social networking website, Google+ has initiated a new book sharing program which is believed to be better than rival website Facebook by many tech critics and experts.

According to a blog post published by Abe Murray, the Product Manager at Google Books, if users are interested in sharing a book they are reading with friends on Google+, they can “Simply click on the Google+ Share box on the About the Book page or in a Google Books preview, enter your message, then select which circles you’d like to share details about the book with, and click share.”

Murray also added that the users can even share the electronic version of the book with a personalised message. As soon as the book is shared, information about the book, its cover page, synopsis (wherever available) along with a link to Google Books will be published on the Google+ stream page.

Users can also paste the URL of the ebook into their share box and let all friends know what books they have been reading.
