Scribd.com is a “social publishing” website which has earned a reputation of genuine and original content, books, articles and presentations etc. It is pronounced “skribbed” and has written work categorized into various categories like books, comics, research, school work, magazines, brochures, how to guides, manuals, case studies, business reports and many more.
The website has more than ten million of documents and books which can be read, printed, downloaded. The “Social” angle of the website brings people together through their shared interests. People can contribute to the conversations happening on Scribd by commenting, rating and Readcasting to friends (that is sharing whatever you are reading with your social network) on Scribd, Facebook and Twitter.
It has converted over a billion pages of written works into web pages (the way we also do for every website submitted to submityoursite.com), and giving a url for the same making it easy to access what you’re reading from any web-enabled hand held device also.
The E-commerce angle -they also have a store where in people from different professions and fields with different knowledge and experience levels like professional publishers and authors to students, scientists, and artists—can sell written works to a potential buying audience on the internet.
