Who founded wattpad?
Wattpad is a writing community in which users can post everything from articles and original stories to fan fiction and poems, through mobile or desktop. Founded in 2006 by two engineers (Allen Lua and Ivan Yue) with a love for reading, the service has become the go-to place for avid readers and writers alike.
Wattpad is a website and app for writers to publish user-generated stories. It aims to create social communities around stories for both amateur and established writers. The platform claims to have an audience of more than 90 million users, who can directly interact with the writers and share their opinions with fellow readers. It is available in 50 languages. A number of Wattpad users are translating stories to continue to build the platform. From December 2006 to 2019, the slogan for the Wattpad website was "Stories you'll love." As of February/March 2019, it is now "Where stories live." It is an online platform where one can write and publish stories or just read them. In January 2021, Wattpad announced that it was to be acquired by Naver Corporation. The deal was completed in May 2021.
