Hi, my name is Emily and I’d like to take a few minutes to show you some of the new social features on Audible.com.

These will help you find your next great listen. I just finished listening to my last book and am looking for a new one.

So I am going to check out this new release. Ballistic. I could use a new thriller. Looks really cool.

Now, let’s see what people are saying about it. ‘an edge of your sit listen’ so this is an interesting review. I really like the way Aaron talks about the book. And it looks like I’m not the only one. Marking a review ‘helpful’ lets the reviewer know that they did a good job and also helps expose it to other listeners.

Over here we have information about the reviewer including a new photo, as well as other stats. And then right below the photo, we have the ability to follow him. It seems that Aaron is a pretty active listener and people seem like what he has to say. Right now Lets check out some of Ellen’s other reviews.

On Aaron’s listener page, I can see the other books that he’s reviewed and it looks like he likes the same kind of books that I do. Am going to follow him so I can get updates whenever he submits a new review. So by clicking here, I can follow him. Or I can ‘unfollow’ him by clicking it again if I want.

Hi, I am Aaron and I’m going to show you some of the new tools we have to review books. I just received an email asking me if I wanted to rate and review a book I downloaded a few weeks ago. When I click here, it takes me straight to the review page, so I will rate the book and start my review. Sometimes I know exactly what I want to say about a book but sometimes I just don’t know where to start.

So in addition to the normal review format, there is an option to write a guided review. Guided reviews create a set of questions for you based on the genre of the book and how you rated it. And what’s cool is that every time you review a book, you get a different set of questions. Of course you can always switch back whenever you want. When am done with my review, I go ahead and post it.

Hi, it’s Emily again. I just got an email letting me know that Aaron has posted a new review. Let’s take a look. I can rate his review and then click here if I want to learn more about the book. If I decide I don’t want to get anymore updates from Aaron, I can ‘unfollow’ him with one click here. Right now am going to go to Audible and search for the book instead.

The book is called The Night Circus, so I will just type in Night. Here I see the book at the top. Take a look at this icon in the corner. It means that someone I follow has reviewed this book, in this case Aaron. But when I look down the search results, I can see books that other people I follow have reviewed. So let’s take a look at The Night Circus.

When I go to the product page, I see Aaron’s review at the top of the page, along with any other users I follow. This looks like a great listen, so I will add it to my wish list. And also right below this, I see a feed of what other Audible listeners are commenting on right now. Well, that’s a quick overview of some of the new social features on Audible.com. We hope that you enjoy trying them out and that they help you discover your next great listen. Thanks.
