How to Post Book Recommendations on Facebook
By Melissa King
Your Facebook business page or professional profile lets you connect with colleagues and customers around the world. Facebook followers see you as a knowledgeable authority in your business, and they often take your recommendations and advice seriously. If you enjoy reading books and want to share your favorites with your followers, use the Goodreads, weRead or aNobii apps. These apps let you search for and review books and then add them to your bookshelf. Facebook followers see the books you recommend on your page or profile.
