Reviewing on social media: Letterboxd

Letterboxd is a film review site operating by crowdsourcing – anyone can contribute a review of a film they have seen. Letterboxd was founded in 2012 by Auckland based web designers Matthew Buchanan and Karl von Randow. Social media has radically widened the scope of who can review creative items and how people can respond to reviews.
