Your weekend project: Make a GroupBook

Our Facebook GroupBook app is no longer available as of February 2010, but you can still use GroupBook straight out of BookSmart.

A few weeks ago we launched Blurb GroupBook, our first Facebook application. We’re seeing some books roll in, and it’s pretty cool to see what people are doing. But we think you can do more. And we’re putting our money where our mouth is – to the tune of free books for our most active GroupBookers.

Here’s what to do:

Download GroupBook from the Facebook Application Directory and start a project

Add Webtwo Cheeseball to your Facebook friends

Invite at least 10 people to contribute photos to your GroupBook

Invite Webtwo Cheeseball to contribute photos to your GroupBook

Watch the shwag roll in

It’s that simple. If 10 friends contribute to your GroupBook between now and Sunday at midnight, and Webtwo Cheeseball can verify this, we’ll comp you a free book, and give everyone who contributes to your GroupBook $10 off their first order. (If you wow us with your book, maybe we’ll throw some shirts your way too – we’ve been known.)

That gives you the whole weekend to start a project, so get as creative as you want. And if you’re on Facebook and you haven’t become a fan of Blurb yet, go do it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see some quick-hit offers appear on the Blurb page from time to time…

See ya out there!

  1. I love the idea of the imagewrap cover. I was hoping this would happen and it did. The markup in price is very minimal all around and is still reasonable. I think so because where I live everything is imported and the markup here is like 300%. This is the first place that I have seen so far that offers up to 440 pages in one book and I think that is awesome. I am working on a family book and I just might have to use all of the 440 pages. I like what I have seen and received so far and would like to see more offer in the future. It would be nice if there were templates for family trees as I am incorporating that in my family book. It would also be helpful if we were able to insert a text box on any part of a page without having to insert a page with a text layout. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  3. It’s too bad this can’t be offered for MySpace or LinkedIn or any other sites. I don’t use facebook but I do love the idea.

    Blurb is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time. I’m making my book now.
    Thanks guys!

  4. Unfortunately, at 7:16am EDT, Blurb GroupBook is having a 500 internal server error and my group cannot access the book. Webtwo Cheeseball finally refriended me but not until the middle of the night.

    This is more frustrating than worth it on a weekend. Hope others create and enjoy!
