What Wikipedia Says about wattpad? Wattpad is a writing community in which users are able to post articles, stories, fan fiction, and poems about anything either online or through the Wattpad app. The content includes work by undiscovered and published writers. Users are able to comment and like stories or join groups associated with the website. Around half of the users are U.S. based; other users come from the U.K., Canada, the Philippines, Australia, United Arab Emirates and other countries. As of this writing, it's about 8 years already since it originated in 2006, as the result of a collaboration between Allen Lau and Ivan Yuen.
Here in the Philippines, Wattpad signed a contract last March this year with Pop Fiction, an imprint of Summit Media, to print Filipino Wattpad stories. In which later have been adapted into "teleseryes". An example of this was TV5's Wattpad Presents, a series of Wattpad stories turned into TV dramas. This project was in partnership with Wattpad and Life is Beautiful Publishing Company. So I guess it's getting popular already and I think I am just too late to know it.
