Gabby here from Wattpad HQ! Wanted to share exciting news about some new things that we’re rolling out today. And what are they?
We’re introducing 3 new features you can add to your stories!
What does this mean? As you know, there are millions of stories on Wattpad, and we’re constantly improving our technology to better understand the massive library of content that is available for us. These new story settings will help Wattpad better understand your story, and help us explore the stories on our site more strategically.
This allows you to tell us about who your main characters are, and can help you keep track of them. More info about Main Characters can be found here.
This tell us who you believe your story would appeal to most, from middle grade to adult, the majority of your readers will most likely fall into one of these demographics. You can read more about Target Audience here.
You can now choose on per-story-part basis what time period the story part is set in. This can be historical, present, to centuries in the future! More info about Time Setting can be found here.
We’re really excited to roll out these features to give authors the tools to help us better understand your story! At this time, these settings will not be public or be seen by anyone other than the author and Wattpad, but implementing these features does give us the potential to build upon them in the future. Of course, if we do make any changes, we’ll let you know.
If you have any other questions, or if there’s anything that isn’t answered in the FAQs above, please ask! We’ll be here to answer.
All the best,
