How many people are on GetGlue

Listening, reading, seeing: How GetGlue already uses different verbs

Soon (hopefully) it will be possible on Facebook to integrate different verbs in applications and to link them with appropriate user actions. With GetGlue there is already a social network that connects different verbs with different actions.

For example, you can watch a movie, read a book, play a video game, and listen to a song.

In addition to these actions, there is also a “Like” button that can be used for all content. The different verbs are used when checking into a movie trailer, for example.

The GetGleue principle works in a similar way to Foursquare. For check-ins you don't get badges, but stickers. With GetGlue, the collecting effect is even more in the foreground than it is with Foursquare.

There are standard stickers and stickers for special promotions, which are provided by film distributors, television stations and record companies, for example. Once you have collected a certain number of stickers, GetGlue sends them to the users' homes by post. The stickers and shipping are free and will also be sent to Germany (tried it out yourself).

The GetGlue approach certainly offers a lot of potential and an additional friends / follower system informs users about the new activities of the contacts.

You can't really compare GetGlue with Facebook's Open Graph apps, as the number of actions is limited, but the various check-in options show how you could build your Open Graph app and what options there are.

I can really recommend GetGlue.
