It's called Listal because you can use it to... list all, isn't it? :)
Everything here is a list: your favorite movies, your favorite directors, your favorite actors and actresses...
Then, it's fun to create your own custom lists on any topics you like. It's a way to "organize" memories too, like the TV shows of a happy childhood, the celebrities I like best (or the least!), top-notch photography, etc.
Some Listal users befriended me, and I gratefully accepted their online friendship! Many of them I "follow" too: that means that I can see what they are doing on Listal (posting images, voting lists, etc.) in the "Updates from contacts" screen. Oftentimes I follow their example and visit the same lists and images.
Listal database is great to explore and to build my own lists, but I also contribute to it by importing titles that are not in the database yet. Sometimes I edit items in order to enter some missing information.
And I should not forget to add the right Tags for each movie, show, book, game...!
Listal is a very powerful tool.
