Goodreads nominated for Best Social Networking Site in the 14th Annual Webby Awards
We are pleased to announce that we have been nominated for a Webby Award, what The New York Times calls the "Internet's highest honor." This year the Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries around the globe, so we're proud to say we made it to the final round in good company. The Social Networking category pits us against four formidable foes: Twitter, Digg, Cute as Hell, and Bakespace. However, last year Twitter won the "Breakout of the Year" Webby Award and Digg won for Social Networking, so it is time for a changing of the guard in 2010.
As a nominee, Goodreads is also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award. From now until April 29th, you can cast your vote, Tweet, and share your love of Goodreads with all fans of reading.
Both Webby Award and People's Voice Award winners will be announced on May 4th, 2010. If we win, we will be limited to a five-word acceptance speech. Winner Al Gore pleaded, "Please don't recount this vote." and Stephen Colbert predictably said, "Me. Me. Me. Me. Me." What should our five-word speech say? Tell us in comments below!
Thanks to the Webby Awards and to all Goodreads members, who we truly believe are what makes Goodreads great. Everyone please vote and spread the word!
