What Kobo Does Well
Kobo uses single sign on to simplify the registration process, avoiding the need for people to create new usernames and passwords.
Kobo educates people on the benefits of logging in with Facebook and shows screens shots of the sharing experience.
Kobo defined Open Graph actions for some of the most conversational aspects of reading a book such as beginning and finishing a book to encourage sharing and stimulate discussions with friends.
Kobo provides detailed controls for people to manage what stories are shared to Facebook.
