Beyond goodreads Online community

Last month I heard the privilege to meet Murdoch University’s literature club during studentsera’s podcast. The literature club aim is to be something like real life goodreads whereby instead of the students to go online discussing books with random online people, you can actually meet people that you can discuss books with.
The ease of online communication nowadays means that more of our social interactions are moving online. But are we missing out on important face-to-face interactions?
The literature club also encourage members to have a log book where you discipline yourself to do some amount of reading every week or everyday based on your ability.
Here is the link http://www.studentsera.com/podcasts/26/ full conversation.

To me platforms like this can help students to have the human connection that is missing these due to social media information overload.
