You may have noticed a growing trend on your social media feed. Today’s audiences share #Shelfies, watch BookTubers, and post screenshots of articles and novels everywhere online. Some argue that the books we display and quotes we share show people who we are.
Wattpad’s team wants storytellers and their audiences to do just that. Starting today you can use Wattpad’s new Facebook Quote Plugin to show people who you are by sharing what you’re reading.
When our team revamped our Quote Art feature last year, it opened up a new way for people to share the words that inspire them straight from their mobile phone.
Today, Anyone who visits Wattpad on their desktop’s web browser can share quotes directly to Facebook. Wattpad’s new Facebook Quote Plugin helps people quickly share highlighted text with friends, family, and followers.
The new Facebook feature allows you to highlight up to 500 characters in a Wattpad story and share it in a way that respects a writer's intellectual property. If you’re trying to foster support for your favourite writer or story during the 2016 Wattys awards, this new feature can help get that story in front of more people in your network.
To try out this new feature, open a Wattpad story on your desktop browser, highlight your favorite passage, and hit share to Facebook! You can review the full how-to guide, here.
