Who Wins in the Books to Movies Fan Website Market?


hypable.com made an article , comparing what has become the latest trend in books to film.  ( (Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games ) They compare between the sites ,But is one better than the other two? And which is best for its respective fandom? 

Over the past few months there have been three websites which launched to much fanfare within their respective fandoms.

Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Twilight all have a site created by the legal owners, and they are each viral in their own way. But is one better than the other two? And which is best for its respective fandom?

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling was first out of the gate with Pottermore a few months ago (though technically it still hasn’t officially launched). The site is a place for fans to go to be sorted, read new content from Jo, and interact in limited ways with fellow Pottermore users.

Next came Lionsgate with TheCapitol.pn for The Hunger Games fans. The site allows you to be placed in a District and receive a District Identification Pass. You’re then encouraged to share the pass on your social media networks. Not much else is offered presently.

Most recently was Summit’s Twilight Time Capsule which allows fans to upload photos, video, and text from a particular time in Twilight history. You can then scroll through all the user-submitted content in an interactive interface. While it looks nice, there are some modifications that should be made so it’s easier to browse the content.

When the Time Capsule was released I was surprised to see a couple Potter fans say that Twilight Time Capsule was copying Pottermore. What? This argument is silly. The two sites don’t compare.

And frankly, Twilight Time Capsule is the best out of the three in terms of catering to the fandom. Time Capsule allows the fans to shape a website using their experiences in the fandom. It’s an extensive archive of moments from the rabid fans who are the reason Twilight exists in the first place.

And before you Twilight haters say, “Well, Twilight doesn’t have new info from its author on theirinteractive site.” That’s true, but they DO have an encyclopedia with new info in book form. (Edit: And that’s not to say Potter and Hunger Games encyclopedias won’t come out in the future.)

I personally think Pottermore is the best, it is basically a online Hogwarts. I love it. But you know, maybe I'm just a bit biased

You can't say - they're opinions.

NO PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE. I can't :( I am both sooo in love with the Twilight books and The Hunger Games books, i can't decide :( You guys might find me not as hard core about Twilight but these are the 2 things I couldn't live without in my life. Twilight is my life and so is The Hunger Games. You can be extremely hard core for two things in your life and have two obsessions and be completely in love and overwhelmed by both of them. So don't think that I'm less obesssed with Twilight just because I can't choose. Its like saying I love my mum more than my dad, now that does sound stupid

I'm sorry but the Twilight time capsule is the better website AND I'LL SAY IT I LOVE TWILIGHT MORE ! So what ? And the people saying Pottermore is better seriously ? I love Potter but that website get's old. And with Twilight the site is amazing and very heartfelt and people will continue putting stuff up and I love looking at it and I'll continue to post after the movies.
