Amazon enhances Kindle sharing

Kindle users can now share quotes with specific friends through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, Amazon has revealed. 

Users of the Amazon device can now employ apps such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp as well as email, texting and more to share quotes, highlights and recommendations with specific friends. Friends who receive a share can instantly start reading a free book preview right from their phone, tablet, or PC—"no need to sign up, sign in, or install an app," the company said.

Russ Grandinetti, senior vice president for Kindle, added: “The perfect quote in a book isn’t always the perfect quote for your whole social network. Now it’s easy to share exactly what you want in a Kindle book with exactly who you want.” 

The new feature is now live in Kindle for Android, and coming to Kindle e-readers and other devices later this year.
