Do You Have an Issuu?

I know many of you might say that I have "issues," but I have never had an "Issuu!"

I think that might soon change as MAVCC recently told me about Issuu, which is also a Time 50 Best Websites for 2009.

Have you ever wanted to turn one of your designed PDF files into page flipping books for interaction on the web? Now's your chance and guess what??? Yep, my favorite two words....IT'S FREE!

Issuu is a Living Library for individuals, publishers and businesses. It's free and open for everyone, who publish and share the web's best publications. You can upload any kind of document and they will turn it into a great looking online publication. They also have three different view modes to fit your needs: Magazine, Presentation and Paper.

The library that you create for yourself is where you organize everything. You can see how many people are viewing, bookmarking and linking to your publications and where in the world people love you the most.

They also have a community where you can post your profile and connect with people in world of online publishing. You can also get your favorite Issuu on Facebook, Blogger, and MySpace with just a few clicks. You can even customize their viewer completely and integrate it in your own website.
Even if you don't want to publish anything, you can follow other authors and bookmark the good stuff for later or instantly share your coolest finds. For thse that want more, publishers and businesses should take a look at Issuu Pro. Designers and developers should take a look at Issuu Platform.
