Amazon lets readers follow authors

Amazon has quietly launched a new way for readers follow their favorite authors. Amazon Follow lets fans know of an author’s latest activity.

Of course readers can choose which authors to follow, and if one of those authors releases a new book the reader followers will be notified shortly thereafter. Amazon will also notify a reader if a person they follow publishes an article.

An author’s follow button can be found on their author page, and readers can manage their privacy settings as well as the authors they follow on each reader’s public profile page.

This might be yet another attempt from Amazon to drag users away from other social networks into it’s own realm.
