Hey everyone, we are really excited to announce a significant update to GetGlue.com, one that includes: personalized new releases for each user; real-time suggestions; the ability to quickly decide if a book, a movie, or album is for you; and a re-imagined user interface.
Personalized New Releases:
Every week, GetGlue scans new releases in movies, music, and books and highlights the ones that are most relevant to you based on what you already like. This ensures that you will not miss a new movie in your favorite genre, a new album by your favorite band or a book on an important topic again. To access new releases, click Suggestions menu and New Releases filter in the sidebar.
GetGlue keeps updating your recommendations in real-time. As you like more on the system, the movies, music, and books that are most relevant to you bubble up to the top. This feature makes it easy for you to pick the next book to read, movie to watch, or band to listen to. Just go to Suggestions and then click Most Recommended filter to see the most relevant suggestions.
Is this for me?
When you visit a movie, an album, or a book on GetGlue.com or around the web, GetGlue shows you similar things that you’ve already liked, reviews from your friends, neighbors with similar tastes, and the entire GetGlue community. You can instantly decide if the movie, album, or book is for you.
New Activity Streams
The new streams compress activity from users over one day. For example, if a friend liked 50 movies in one day, there will be a single entry in your stream highlighting the most recent ones and giving you the ability to explore more.
Before, you might have missed an update from one friend, because another one was very active on the service. Now, all updates are compact and you will be able to see what all of your friends are up to.
Streams also include more information, such as stickers and guru updates, votes and subscriptions. You can also now reply and vote on each stream entry without leaving the page.
New User Experience
GetGlue.com has been re-skinned and re-imagined to be bigger, shiner, simpler, and more fun. Everything is focused to help you get to places faster and be entertained. From large covers to streamlined menus and a new Explore section, we re-worked the site to help you better connect with friends and find your next favorite thing.
Please take the new GetGlue.com for a spin. We are looking forward to your feedback!
