The Facebook Review
A development at the intersection of social networking and literary magazinary (magazinage? something like that): The Facebook Review, "the first and only literary review that uses Facebook as its means of publishing, of marketing, and of editing." (Not clear what "marketing" would mean in this context, but then there are a lot of things about Facebook that I don't quite get yet.)
More information is available at its homepage, but you have to be signed up with Facebook to see it.
I asked Jacob McArthur Mooney, the managing editor, if there were any example or model he could point to as an example of what the format might look like. And there isn't:
In essence, the individual issues will look a lot like Facebook events with discussion threads each containing a work and (hopefully) several responses to that. This might look kind of ugly to those who have trouble letting the two traditions (social networking and the literary review) comingle. That is sort of the point.
The first issue is in the preparation now. I'll post an update here when it is actually out. Or up, or however you'd put it.
