Wattpad Adds New Feature to Connect Writers and Fans

Have you ever wanted to stalk your favorite authors and pester them about how their latest book is coming along? Thanks to Wattpad, you won’t have to hide in the bushes anymore.

The world’s largest eBook community has just finished beta testing the Wattpad News Feed. This feature is somewhat like Twitter, and it lets Wattpad users follow the postings of writers, readers, and other users. But the Wattpad News Feed has one features that twitter lacks: it probably won’t crash as often.

Besides connecting writers with fans, it will also let users follow the comments and discussion about particular novels as well as tell you when a writer you’re following adds a new story or updates an older work. Writers will know when someone becomes a fan of their novel and when a user adds the writer’s novel to the user’s library.
