Does anyone know what/where this is and how to use it?

Are you refering to Facebook Recommend for the books you already have posted? There is a Facebook Recommend box at the top of your Bookshelf that you mark and then it will open up the option on each individual book and you can share the ones you want.

On my bookshelf, up where it shows the Facebook recommend box to check, if I hover over the exclamation point, a box opens and tells about adding the botton to each book, so I have done that. Also, the last paragraph of the open box says: If you want a prominent post to your profile (cover image, description, etc.) you need to type something in the Share It on Facebook with a comment...box and post. What does this last part mean? Where is the box that I'm supposed to type something in? The only thing that is coming onto my Facebook page, when I click the recommend botton, is the book cover image without description. Apparently, according to the information that pops up, when I hover over the exclamation point, I'm supposed to do an additional step to get the description, but I don't know how to do that. Thanks for any help or explanation.

I was hoping you would get more answers, Kay. I have the same issue. The problem is, the rest of the box isn't showing up. When I use my iPod, it does show up. When I'm on my laptop (Windows 7, IE 9) the box is cut off and I can't type anything in no matter what I do.

It appears to be a spacial issue or something. I also use Win7, IE9.  I don't use this feature myself, but just tested it. I clicked on the Recommend button, and only half the window that should appear did. I hit my Tab key 3 times to move my curser down enough so that the box where I could type popped up into view. I was able to type in a message that posted on Facebook just fine. I will send in Feedback, but if it is browser specific they usually just tell me to use FireFox unstead :(

Thanks! I'll try using the tab key next time I'm on my laptop. It's kinda frustrating, since I'd like to incorporate PaperBack Swap into my Facebook page more. Sounds like TPTB are not IE fans. ;) My desktop has an older version of Windows and IE. A year or so ago, I was having trouble getting forum pages to load. I could read them for a long time, but then they suddenly wouldn't load. I had to download Firefox JUST for this site. I haven't found any problems with this site and IE9 (other than the share thing). I don't want to switch browsers just for one site. They should be able to fix this (if they want to). Otherwise, I guess I just won't share. LOL Thanks for looking into the problem and finding a possible solution. :)

This should be fixed now, if anyone wants to check it out.  Thanks for your feedback!

Thanks everyone for your help. Since no one seemed to have an answer after the first couple of days, I contacted TPTB and so I'm thinking that they checked it out and fixed it. That was very prompt! I just tried it out. It works great!
