Librarians are experimenting with a wide range of Facebook Apps ranging from the productive such as the 30 Boxes Calendar, Meebo, Twitter, and Zoho Online Office to the silly with Zombies, Likeness, My Aquarium, and SuperPoke.

Books iRead – With nearly 200,000 users, this handy app claims to be the most popular book application on Facebook. iRead lets you share a virtual bookshelf of titles you are currently reading, those you want to read, those you have read in the past, and books you won’t read. You can also rate titles, spotlight book reviews you’ve written, and list books you own as well as your all-time favorite books. By accessing your iRead dashboard you can check out your friends’ reads, tweak your display settings, and view new books added to the quickly-growing collection of 2.8 million books. Other options – Visual Bookshelf (115,881 users), Books By Martin Mroz and Larry Gadea (50,542 users), Books By Jonathan Lipps, (26,177 users).Keep reading on iLibrarian here.
