Scribd began with a simple observation — that the desire for self-expression through the written word is as old as humanity itself. But even with the proliferation of blogs and other self-publishing tools, there was no easy way for average people to publish to a readership of millions.
Today, Scribd is the largest social publishing company in the world — the website where more than 60 million people each month discover and share original writings and documents.
Scribd’s vision is to liberate the written word — to turn everyone into a publisher and create the best possible reading experience on the web and mobile platforms.
"... the idea behind Scribd is that everyone has a lot of documents sitting around on their computers that only they can read."
Tens of millions of readers every month
