Wow - Wattpad: 20 million users, 4.5 billion visits a month, 8 million (mostly positive) comments a month, 80% mobile. #fbook13— Julia Silk (@juliasilk72)

In case you were busy having lives and/or conducting intensive offline collection development, I wanted to bring Wattpad to your attention again. The social writing site based in Toronto made a big splash at today’s FutureBook conference in London, with impressive stats about its audience.
(For excellent tweets, check out the #fbook13 stream and pay particular attention to Chris McCruden, @cmccrudden.)
I couldn’t help but think how libraries that want to pioneer the publisher idea should work with Wattpad as they work with writers. Anyone out there doing this?
