Widbook: New literary social network invests in worldwide collaborative content
- Site aims to provide a space where authors and readers find content
SAO PAULO, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine a common place where authors and readers meet content and where they can interact to collectively create literary works. This is the idea behind Widbook, a free, smart platform for creating, exploring and sharing ideas with people throughout the world.
Widbook.com, a literary social network, offers new tools for digital publishing and reading. Authors can use it to see the format in which their book will be published; users can classify and organize their favorites on bookshelves or suggest changes to or ideas for books by authors they follow.
The platform is an opportunity for any users to publicize their digital publication, even serving as an alternative for people who are unable to find a niche among traditional publishers. The model explores the concept of collaboration, facilitating the creation of unique content and the possibility of a number of authors writing together, becoming co-authors.
Widbook has emerged at a time of rapid growth in the digital reading and writing environments, and the company has just completed a round of investment to expand the network internationally. Funds were raised with the help of W7 Brazil Capital, a Brazilian investment company focused on the internet market.
The success of e-books throughout the world is a reality. According to a study conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and published in December 2012, the number of Americans who read e-books grew from 16% to 23% while the number who read printed books dropped from 72% to 67%. This growth goes hand in hand with the increasing success of tablets, such as the iPad, and e-readers like Kindle and Kobo.
