Effects of

Book Giving


It is stated that on 2013, Wattpad has 15 million users and still counting around the world wherein people spend 3.5 billion minutes on the said writing site.
The co-founder of Wattpad, Allen Lau explained how the mobile-driven storytelling flatform changed publishing in Philippines in the recent copyright clearance center interview. Here is the statement: “ The publishing system over there is not as established. But it doesn’t change the desire of the people. People still love to read, and people still love to write. But without an established system, the outer doesn’t exist for those people. So in the case of Philippines. One thing quite interesting is as yopu say know, It’s also a bilingual country. So some of the Filipino writers, they actually started writing in our English community first, and they realized, hey, I can actually write in “tagalog”. So some of the writers, they started to write “Tagalog” stories, and then grew the community from there.. Each country has their own stories. But what we’ve seen in common is the storytelling is very universal.

Wattpad is more than a simply platform, It’s really a social media network focused on writing and books. The positioning is deliberate as it represents the philosophy underlying the monetization strategy at the company which now has some 40-45 million monthly users. “Most are readers.” says Lau. and “some 1.5 million people have posted something in the the last 30 days, so we have a lot of writers as well. But what I really want is 1.5 billion users, readers and writers, using Wattpad. That’s my goal.”
English is then top language used in Wattpad, and Spanish is second representing-15%-having just overtaken by Tagalog. Which is spoken in Philippines. Turkish is now 10% of traffic. Other countries where wattpadd is increasingly powerful include Indonesia and Russia; Unfortunately, The company has been shut down of China, and groth in India- where the mobile infrasfructure is still growing- slower than expected.
As for reaching billion users, Lau says it’s just a matter of time, even without China. Lau says, “We talk about short term, but I have a very long term view. I look where thiscould be in 10 years. Our core belief is that there are only a handful of big multimedia that will exist: videos, photos, and the written word. The majority of the people in this planet will be creating content in those verticals Right now, we have 3 billion users but the number will grow.Overtime, You can safely assume that people will have a reading writing device in their hand and four people out of five people will be able to write: We think we should be able to get a billion users without much difficuly.

Media and communication technology and its rapid development had a revolutionary effect on the reading habots and fpopular fans of Literature. The main topic of this paper is the “The new age readers” especially the reading habits, interaction, fan activities and identity creation. Our purpose is to trace the transformation in reading habits that occur with digital media and social networks. We have conducted in depth interviews with Slovenian and foreign readers, who view the internet as an absoloute necessity for reading popular literature products.

The analysis shows that Slovenian readers who stromgly connect reading reading activities with the Internet subsequently bring global fan activity trends, Such as fan fiction and real person fiction, to Slovenia. There is also a strong support for an identity construction thesis and our findings are also congruent with the thesis of consumer tribes, since we argue that new age readers construct their identities in a weakly connected group of people, who prefer to communicate on different digital communication channels rather than real life.

The Philippine copyright law is enshrined in the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines, officially known as Republic Act No. 8293. The law is based on United States copyright Law. Unlike many other copyright law, Philippines copyright laws also protect patents, trademarks, and other forms of intellectual property.(Research on the Copyright Law Republic Act No. 8293 and how it applies and not only to physical looks but e-books as well.
This are the evidence that there are further studies that conducted as the same as ours. And this shows the law in the Philippines that you shoul put a copyright in a statement you copied.
