We wanted to create a positive community for users to connect to other readers and books, where the barriers to contributing and consuming content would be relatively low compared to other literary social platforms currently out in the world.
On Bookstagram, users post content that relates to books they’re reading to share with their friends. They can discover new books to read from friends’ posts, through hashtags, through author pages, etc.
Bookstagram encourages users to understand how we see the books we read while learning more about books & art. It’s also an inherently positive medium – if you’re posting a picture about a book, it probably means you loved it and would recommend it.
What's in store for the future?
As the platform gains traction and gathers more wisdom from its users, you could imagine using that data to make Bookstagram being an even better place to discover new books or to connect authors directly to their fans.
